The votes are in and the Best of Show winners of FinovateAsia 2016 have been announced. Thanks to all 36 companies that demoed in Hong Kong this week and a hearty congratulations to the four audience favorites.
The winners are as diverse as the financial technologies they represent. Whether providing merchants with a broader range of payment options via the cloud, or extending the boundaries of what a piece of plastic can do to make commerce better for consumers and card issuers alike, the Best of Show winners reflect an industry that is as interested in making positive incremental change as it is in dazzling us with the latest innovations in biometric authentication and chatbot technology.

Alpha Payments Cloud for its new joint venture with Australia Post that will bring a variety of innovative payment options to online merchants in Australia.
