With a strategic focus on Asia Pacific, the Middle East, and Africa, Nium reaffirms its commitment to innovation and collaboration in the fintech landscape.

Nium, the global leader in real-time payments, has marked a major milestone with the inauguration of its cutting-edge headquarters in Singapore. The grand opening ceremony was graced by Mr. Heng Swee Keat, Deputy Prime Minister of Singapore, and signifies Nium’s unwavering dedication to revolutionizing the world of global payments. Strategically positioned at Capital Tower in the heart of Singapore’s bustling Central Business District, this state-of-the-art facility boasts contemporary design, collaborative workspaces, and an array of employee-centric amenities.

Serving as a strategic hub, Nium’s new headquarters will cater to clients across Asia Pacific, the Middle East, and Africa, solidifying the company’s position as a key player in these regions. Leading the operations from Singapore will be Mr. Pratik Gandhi, Co-Founder and COO at Nium. Assisting him in this endeavor will be Mr. Anupam Pahuja, a recent addition to Nium as Executive Vice President and General Manager for Asia Pacific, Africa, and the Middle East. Drawing on his extensive experience in scaling global enterprises, including his tenure at PayPal, Mr. Pahuja’s appointment aims to propel Nium’s impressive growth trajectory, which saw its net revenue surge by over 2.5 times globally from 2021 to 2022.

Nium’s new headquarters not only underscores its commitment to Singapore but also introduces initiatives aimed at benefiting the broader regional fintech community. The company plans to collaborate with both public and private sectors to establish a center of excellence in Singapore, focusing on the recruitment, training, mentoring, and development of ‘BizTech’ talent—a novel job category that recognizes the growing significance of blending technical expertise with business acumen.

In another bold move, Nium is expanding its highly successful fintech accelerator program, Bolt. Designed to empower startup founders with access to essential resources, including facilities, funding, mentoring, and cutting-edge technology, Bolt was initially founded in Singapore. Now, it will extend its reach to San Francisco, California, serving as a launchpad for Singaporean companies seeking to establish a foothold in the United States of America.

Expressing his vision for Nium, Mr. Prajit Nanu, Co-Founder and CEO, remarked, “When I started Nium, I had ambitious dreams of what it could become—none of which would have been achievable without the support of the government, investors, and clients that form an integral part of Singapore’s thriving fintech community. This headquarters will serve as a home for our expanding regional team, and we remain open to entrepreneurs ready to tackle the next set of global challenges with innovation.”

Nium’s decision to establish its headquarters in Singapore attests to the vibrant fintech landscape the country offers. With its supportive economic policies, access to top-notch talent, and strategic location, Singapore presents an ideal launchpad for Nium’s pioneering solutions.

Mr. Jeffrey Siow, Managing Director and Chief Operating Officer at Enterprise Singapore, enthusiastically added, “It has been exhilarating to witness Nium, a homegrown fintech company, evolve and thrive over the past decade. The unveiling of Nium’s new headquarters in Singapore reinforces their unwavering commitment to our nation. We eagerly anticipate our continued partnership with Nium as they scale up and expand their global footprint.”

The inauguration of the new office follows Nium’s recent accolade as a Great Place to Work Certified™ employer, further affirming its status as an exemplary global workplace. This esteemed certification, highly sought after by organizations worldwide, is unique as it relies on firsthand experiences of team members, providing a genuine reflection of the consistently high-trust environment at Nium. Additionally, Nium was honored to be included in the prestigious Forbes Fintech 50, a definitive compilation of the most innovative companies in the financial technology sector.

Located at 168 Robinson Road, Capital Tower, #18-03, Singapore 068912, the new Nium Co-Headquarters represents a significant leap forward in Nium’s journey to shape the future of global payments and elevate Singapore’s fintech ecosystem to greater heights.
