Razer’s fintech arm brings on board GIC’s Lim to help with global push

The Hong Kong-based gaming hardware company plans a global expansion of its payments arm. Lim, who has held executive positions at GIC, MAS and within the Singaporean civil service, could prove a useful ally.

Razer Fintech, the financial technology arm of online gaming firm Razer, has hired Lim Siong Guan as an advisory board member to help with its global payments push.

The high-profile appointment of the Singaporean, whose résumé includes several key city-state positions, highlights the region's ongoing battle-royale for payments supremacy.
