Singapore Fintech Festival brings together over 45,000 participants from 130 countries. This year, Meniga’s Kanika Mittal was one of the speakers. In her keynote, Kanika talked about how banks should look at Open Banking as an opportunity rather than a threat — giving concrete examples of what’s already happening in the market. Finews Asia caught up with Kanika to learn more.
Earlier this year Meniga announced a partnership with leading bank UOB on launching the TMRW app which has been very well received by millennials and more. The app is heavily gamified and takes inspiration from games such as Age of Empires and more to make personal finances more accessible and fun.
“When they begin, they are on level one. As they save more they can build a village before upgrading to a town, city and super city.
The app has a total of 74 levels and it has proven so popular that customers called to increase the savings limit per day to advance.” says Kanika
TMWR provides gamified money management for users. This is already one of the favourite features of the Thai users. The game is designed to encourage customers to save money. As they progress, they level up and build a virtual city that grows with their savings.
