Malaysian Kenanga Bank & Ant Group to Develop a Crypto-Friendly Super App

As one of the major local banks integrates bitcoin trading into its standard banking products, Malaysia’s adoption of cryptocurrencies continues to pick up speed.

With more than 500,000 clients, one of the biggest private investment banks, Kenanga Investment Bank Berhad, has teamed up with Chinese tech giant Ant Group to introduce a cryptocurrency-friendly wallet and trading software.

A statement on Wednesday claimed that Kenanga and Ant had signed a memorandum of understanding to collaboratively create Malaysia’s premier app for wealth management.

According to the terms of the contract, mPaaS, a mobile development platform originating from AliPay App, would be made available to Kenanga by Ant’s digital technology division.

Adopted by many businesses to build new apps and optimize the performance of existing apps, our financial-grade mPaaS mobile development platform is well-positioned to support Kenanga in integrating a wide range of products and services into its SuperApp.

By combining various financial services like stock trading, digital investment management, cryptocurrency trading, digital wallets, foreign exchange, and others into a single platform, the super app is intended to revolutionise the way money is managed in Malaysia. The app will supposedly debut in early 2023, according to Kenanga.

Kenanga Group managing director Datuk Chay Wai Leong said that they look forward to not just bring a wide range of financial offerings under one roof, but more significantly, to democratise financial services for the millions of Malaysians and making wealth creation more accessible.

He added that the new application would propel the development of Kenanga, which has been experimenting with digital financial services for five years.

Kenanga has been a prominent player in the cryptocurrency sector, investing in regional cryptocurrency exchange operators like Tokenize Technology in 2021, as was previously reported.
