CEO's Message

Dear all

It has been a busy start to the new year, digesting the changes amongst jurisdictions and curating a value proposition for Labuan IBFC based on the new operating landscape we find ourselves in. As a midshore jurisdiction, the new operating environment will change on the ground requirements but not drastically. And as a cost-efficient location for the intermediation of trade and investments in the centre of Asia, our proposition remains intact.

Over the next month we will be in Singapore, Hong Kong and Beijing, so please reach out to meet up at any of these cities. Our foray into a fintech based event will be via Token 2049 in Hong Kong in mid-March, and we look forward to showcasing our fintech tool box there. Not many realise Labuan's fintech offering is extensive, having licensed our first robo advisor in 2017.

Since then there have been numerous ICOs and fintech funds launched. More exciting news is in the offing here, so look out for more news on this front. The team and I look forward to catching up with you over the coming months.

Till then, the team and I look forward to catching up in person!

And to all the women out there, let me be the first to wish you a Happy International Women's Day on 8th March!
