The Cyberport ecosystem is a key part of the government’s fintech strategy and offers the perfect ambience for Finastra to explore and seize opportunities with our 400 fintech start-ups which form the largest fintech cluster in town. I am looking forward to seeing Finastra bringing these innovative Cyberport start-ups to the international stage with its global network, and helping Hong Kong to strengthen its leading position in the fintech sector.”
