FOMO Pay, CapBridge, 1exchange, Asset Management, Capital Markets, Singapore FinTech, FOMO Group, a Singapore-based financial holding group, has announced the acquisition of CapBridge, a capital markets service and asset custody firm, & 1X Exchange, a private securities exchange company.

With approval from the Monetary Authority of Singapore (MAS) on the acquisition, FOMO Group has secured Capital Markets Services (CMS) and Recognized Market Operator (RMO) licenses in Singapore.

This deal strengthens FOMO Group as an integrated, regulated, licensed digital payment and asset solution provider in Asia.

With a vigilant and proactive regulatory approach, FOMO Group acquired capital market licenses and its existing Payment Service Act (PSA) licenses.

Louis Liu, Chairman of FOMO Group said, “We are excited to bring CapBridge and 1exchange into FOMO Group. Given CapBridge and 1exchange’s demonstrated track record and their strategic investors, such as Singapore Exchange and Hanwha Group, from their previous Series A, the acquisition empowers us to forge a fully integrated financial service ecosystem, offering our clients a comprehensive suite of value-added products.

The attainment of CMS and custodial service license, and RMO license further strengthens FOMO to provide secure, robust, and compliant one-stop solutions to SMEs, merchants, and corporate and institutional clients while maintaining a competitive advantage in the industry.

Furthermore, we have proactively structured our business strategy to align with the ever-evolving global regulatory trends and enhance our compliance capabilities. Therefore, the acquisition of both CapBridge and 1exchange highlights a significant achievement for FOMO Group,” added Liu.
