The Lab will collaborate with the government, customers, tech startups and universities to build partnerships and create products and solutions for professional markets throughout the Asia Pacific region. The Singapore Lab is the first branch in Asia to open as part of Thomson Reuters Labs network, joining locations in Boston, Cape Town, London, Waterloo (Canada) and Zürich.
Located in Singapore's central business district at One Raffles Quay, the Lab opening was officiated by Sopnendu Mohanty, Chief Fintech Officer, Monetary Authority Singapore (MAS) and will support Thomson Reuters financial & risk, tax & accounting and legal businesses across Asia Pacific.
Mona Vernon, Vice President, Thomson Reuters Labs, commented, "Located in global innovation ecosystems, we engage with our clients, entrepreneurs and academics to invent and test emerging technologies that will define the future of knowledge work. Building a Lab in Singapore was a critical next step due to the government's commitment to the innovation economy."
