Eddid Financial (the “Group”), an all-encompassing financial group centered around fintech, and ManagePay Systems Berhad (“MPAY”, 0156.MY) , a leading Malaysian fintech company, have signed an agreement to establish a joint venture, building on their earlier Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) announced in February. This strategic partnership aims to leverage both companies’ strengths in fintech research and development, as well as their unique expertise, to jointly expand the Malaysian financial market and create new opportunities within the Southeast Asian financial ecosystem. As part of its commitment to overseas expansion, and increase the variety of financial products, the joint venture will apply for a Capital Market Services Licence (CMSL) from the Securities Commission Malaysia to provide capital market services in the country.

Over the years, it has expanded its offerings to include P2P lending, micro lending, project financing, P2P Remittance, cross-border remittance, merchant acquiring, and e-Wallet & Mastercard prepaid card issuer in Malaysia.
This joint venture marks a significant milestone in Eddid Financial’s ongoing strategic expansion into overseas markets, further extending its presence beyond its existing businesses in Hong Kong SAR and the United States by entering the Malaysian financial sector. As a full-service financial group based in Hong Kong, the Group has consistently prioritized fintech innovation. With multiple licenses and membership across key financial markets, including Hong Kong SAR and the United States, the Group is dedicated to providing comprehensive, one-stop financial services and products to global institutional and individual clients.
By combining the innovative fintech solutions and system products of both companies, Eddid Financial aim to create a win-win situation with MPAY, driving growth and innovation in the region. The partnership will facilitate in-depth technical and business collaborations in fintech R&D, allowing both parties to share resources and experiences. This strategic alliance will generate strong synergies, contribute to breakthroughs in both companies’ business development, and further solidify Eddid’s position as a global fintech innovator with a growing international footprint.
