Digital Identity Firm Callsign Chooses Singapore as APAC Headquartersby Fintech News Singapore March 16, 2021
Callsign, a London-based artificial intelligence-driven identity and authentication solutions provider, has named Singapore as its headquarters for the Asia Pacific region which will expand throughout 2021.
Callsign has chosen Singapore as the Asia Pacific headquarters due to the increase in demand for regulatory compliant authentication and fraud prevention solutions across South East Asia.
According to a recent report from PWC, 42% of companies surveyed in Singapore compared with 47% globally, experienced incidents of fraud and economic crime within the past 24 months.
Callsign has also appointed Namrata Jolly as General Manager for the Asia Pacific region, and she will oversee the development of the new headquarters.
Reporting to Amir Nooriala, Chief Commercial Officer at Callsign, Jolly will build on recent banking customer wins in Singapore, Hong Kong and Australia by expanding the existing banking sales team into new verticals namely payments, e-commerce and government and to additional countries in the region.
Jolly brings over 20 years of experience in the financial services industry and has led regional and global teams implementing strategic and transformational digital initiatives at Citi Bank and Prudential.
Jolly is also a strong advocate of diversity co-founding the diversity initiative at Citigroup Japan, and co-leading ‘Women in Fintech’ committee for the Singapore Fintech Association.
“It’s an exciting time to join Callsign as organizations across Asia Pacific have been forced to not only rethink their physical and digital processes but also accelerate the transition between the two.
Callsign is uniquely positioned to be the go-to digital identity solution in APAC. Already approved for 3 factor authentication by multiple regulators around the world, our passive solutions have no impact on user’s digital journeys,”
said Namrata Jolly.
“As part of our expansion into APAC and building out our regional headquarters in Singapore, our search was focused on identifying a leader who truly understands how to help organisations digitally transform, whilst putting the customer at the heart of that transformation.
Namrata has displayed these characteristics and skillsets throughout her career and we, our existing and prospective new clients are delighted that she is now joining us to lead our APAC business,”
said Amir Nooriala, Chief Commercial Officer, Callsign.
