Last year, the Monetary Authority of Singapore (MAS) announced the grant of digital bank licenses to four winning applicants.

It awarded digital full bank licenses to the Grab-Singtel consortium and Sea, as well as digital wholesale bank licenses to Ant Group and a consortium comprising Greenland Financial Holdings, Linklogis Hong Kong and Beijing Co-operative Equity Investment Fund Management.

MAS’ intention is for a digital full bank to eventually be able to conduct all banking businesses as existing banks, which aims to serve both retail and corporate consumers.

Like a traditional bank, digital banks provide Singaporeans with banking services like an account, deposits, loans, debit and credit cards, payments and investment products.
