In October 2017, PINTEC and FWD Hong Kong (FWD) established PIVOT, a Singapore-based fintech joint venture, to provide financial institutions in Southeast Asia with dynamic, real-time wealth management and robo-advisor technology unique to PINTEC. This marked the first “going global” milestone for China’s robo-advisory sector.
In April 2018, PINTEC and United Overseas Bank (UOB) jointly established AVATEC, a Singapore-based digital credit assessment technology company. Incepted in 1935, UOB is one of the most influential banks in Southeast Asia with footprints in Malaysia, Indonesia, Thailand and the Philippines.
