Not only is it a gateway into Europe, but it is also a sought-after investment destination for businesses who are instrumental in the country's economic growth,” said Benjamin Wong, co-founder and CEO of TranSwap.
Wong added that businesses can now gain access to international markets through improved payment options with the latest fintech being a game-changer in streamlining cross-border payments. The company aims to simplify the process, especially now that most markets are combating the economic consequences of the pandemic.
TranSwap is set to open a global R&D centre at the University of Edinburgh's Bayes Centre to create a talent pipeline for local graduates and postgraduates to enter the fintech market.
The company envisions itself to create 54 jobs over the next three years, including machine learning engineers and full-stack developers roles to support the firm's market expansion and R&D plans.
