Listed fintech Identitii receives Patent approval in Singapore
ASX-listed Austrlian fintech company Identitii has announced that it has received Patent approval in Singapore. The newly received approval covers Identitii’s longer term vision of a global ecosystem for secure sharing of financial transaction information and is a key part of its Intellectual Property (IP) strategy. Singapore is the second market to recognise Identitii’s Patent, following approval in the United States in December 2020.
Commenting on the announcement, John Rayment, CEO, Identitii said, “One of the really exciting opportunities for Identitii is to monetise the Patent we own in the U.S., which today becomes a Portfolio of Patents with the inclusion of our approved Patent in Singapore. The company has been actively pursuing several promising opportunities to monetise our Patent in the U.S., and the addition of our approved Patent in Singapore to the Portfolio potentially increases those U.S. opportunities, and adds another jurisdiction where our strategy can be deployed.”
Identitii’s patented invention of a secure financial information sharing ecosystem overcomes key limitations with existing technology systems to simplify financial crime compliance, streamline regulatory reporting and enable faster settlement of payments.
Identitii’s near-term focus on automating regulatory reporting to AUSTRAC and other global regulators is the first important step towards this longer-term vision.
The company’s patented invention is being used in-part today by Mastercard Cross-Border Services to securely share information across its account-to-account network, simplifying financial crime compliance and streamlining payment operations.
Identitii has filed for patent protection in several other global jurisdictions, in addition to the U.S. and Singapore.
