Airwallex, a Hong Kong-based fintech platform, has launched an expense management solution and a virtual multicurrency Visa business debit card in Singapore.
Airwallex said that the new service, called Borderless Card, can be used by businesses in Singapore to make online card payments to other countries globally. Transactions through the service will use the startup’s foreign exchange rates.

Moving forward, the fintech firm plans to expand its solution to enable physical cards and digital wallet integration.
