BankBazaar.com has initiated its international business expansion within Asia with special focus on Singapore.

In addition, with an aim to strengthen international presence, BankBazaar.com will subsequently focus on other growth markets including Malaysia, Philippines and UAE.

Adhil Shetty, co-founder and CEO, BankBazaar.com said, “This is an exciting time for us at BankBazaar.com. We are growing rapidly and are consolidating our position as the largest financial marketplace in India. It is time we slowly begin to spread our wings and launch our brand in international markets. Singapore became our first choice as the government and regulators are very supportive. We are trying to build a strong international team. Aman, with his background of having transformed channels into one of the largest and most preferred banking digital real estates in the world serving over 10 million people in 35 countries, is just the right person to lead this initiative.”

 Speaking on his decision to join a startup after 15 years with Standard Chartered, Narain said: “Technology is fundamentally altering the way we live and work, and with new rules come new players. Companies that were unknown a few years back are now household names, such as our lead investor Amazon. BankBazaar.com, with its industry-leading technology, strong track record and such a high caliber of investors, is well positioned to become a household name not only in India but across Asia, particularly in high-potential markets such as Singapore. That inspires me.”
