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.”

Vista looks forward to investing in digital transformation in the Greater Bay Area and supporting China as it opens its financial sector. We look forward to continuing to evolve and transform the financial sector out of Finastra’s new home at the iconic Cyberport.”
