Labuan Fintech Association (LFTA) was created in 2019 to drive the fintech and digital ecosystem in Labuan International Business and Financial Centre (Labuan IBFC) and the region. Working closely with other associations in Malaysia, Asia and beyond, LFTA aims to grow the digital industry in Labuan IBFC, and by extension, Malaysia.
Labuan IBFC has a fast growing digital ecosystem that includes digital banks and insurtechs as well as digital intermediaries and platforms such as robo-advisors, digital asset exchanges and e-payment systems.
In addition, having a comprehensive, omnibus Islamic legislation and its own Shariah Supervisory Council, also sets Labuan IBFC as a befitting hub for Shariah-compliant digital financial players.
