@alistair-black hey man! Revisiting this post - curious to hear from you on the key considerations you had when starting an EU bank account? Does having it provide significant advantages over having just a TransferWise borderless account? (for a Malaysia-based investor)
We’re a community of alternative investing (peer-to-peer lending, crowdfunding, robo-advisory and more) company representatives, investors, financial bloggers, beginners and enthusiasts.
Stoked to be part of this initiative. Drop me a DM if you'd like to chat. Reach me at firstname.lastname@example.org for partnership opportunities!
Meanwhile, here's a little more about me:
- I'm based in Singapore, & travel occasionally to Malaysia to meet some of you folks!
- Fun fact: My first ever investment was in P2P Lending ;)
- I know MBTI can be seen as BS (I don't think so though), but no harm putting this out there: ENFP
- I majored in both Psychology & Marketing, and I'm happy to be immersed within Fintech right now
- I play the guitar, cajon and drums (in times of better hand-leg coordination)

SG X MY: Singapore's EZ-Link joins forces w/ Malaysia’s Touch ‘N Go!
We may own the above card as early as Q4 2019! Source
This exciting new partnership between the 2 firms will give birth to a dual currency Combi Card—which will host both e-wallets from EZ-Link and Touch ‘n Go.
Singapore's EZ-Link: The very first contactless stored value card introduced and most widely used for public transit use on the MRT, LRT and buses
Malaysia's Touch 'N Go: Smart card used by Malaysian toll expressway and highway operators as the sole electronic payment system.
For now, the Combi Card is planned for use to pay for electronic road pricing in Singapore, tolls in Malaysia, and parking, though the companies hint at potential further use;
like shopping and dining, it seems.
^ hmmm we did not see that coming, did we (?)
Interestingly, this collaboration would resonate with absolutely everyone here at CrowdFund Talks (since we've got alternative investors from both countries interacting and collaborating)! 💪
What sort of users do you think would appreciate this product the most?
What synergies do you think this partnership could bring about / result in?
