3.  The Dialogue discussions committed to further co-operation in several areas of joint interest:

a. Ensuring market access – Discussions centred on facilitating ongoing activity between the two financial centres and the implications of the UK’s exit from the European Union on cross border financial regulation. Both countries also expressed interest in exploring closer co-operation in areas such as asset management, insurance and payments.
b. Strengthening cybersecurity collaboration – Joint workshops will be conducted to exchange knowledge in areas such as cybersecurity strategy, governance, risk assessment, monitoring and response.
c. Building on the existing UK-Singapore FinTech Bridge in response to feedback from FinTech firms in both countries – Both sides agreed to work towards raising the profile of the Bridge and measures that will support FinTech firms looking to operate across both markets. They also agreed to set up a Supervisory Tech Alliance to encourage collaboration on areas of potential cross-jurisdictional regulatory efficiency.
