Singapore-based digital wealth manager StashAway has bolstered its international footprint by rolling out its services in Thailand.
Regulated by the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC), the platform will allow Thailand residents to invest overseas through its mobile app.
According to central bank data, people in Thailand are increasingly investing in overseas assets. However, Thailand investors are said to remain overinvested in domestic assets compared to investors in Singapore and Hong Kong.
StashAway Asset Management Thailand managing director Tim Niranvichaiya said: “People in Thailand increasingly want to invest overseas to diversify their portfolios more effectively, but aren’t able to access these investment options easily because of how complex and expensive they are.
“That’s where StashAway can make a significant difference to people’s long-term financial success. It only takes a few minutes to sign up and access globally-diversified, personalised portfolios with one transparent, all-inclusive fee.”
The firm’s expansion into Thailand follows the commencement of a $25m in its Series D funding round led by Sequoia Capital India.
