1. Deutsche Bank launches Singapore lab
Deutsche Bank launched its first Asia Pacific Innovation Lab in Singapore, which will work closely with its wealth management business, as well as support the corporate and investment banking unit in the region.
The key objective for the lab is to find start-up opportunities across Asia Pacific, through Singapore, to scale globally across the bank’s platform.
René Keller, Deutsche’s chief data officer and group head of innovation said: 'We aim to be the first place start-ups want to do business.
'By connecting with start-ups, we enable internal teams to adopt solutions that enhance, improve and reimagine the way we serve clients. For start-ups, we provide client access, industry expertise and ready-made infrastructure.'
