As a well-known listed financial company in Thailand, G Capital has been prudent about its choice of partners overseas. At the signing ceremony, Mr. Spain, G Capital Managing Director, said without mincing his words that 9F International was chosen out of a myriad of Fintech companies from developed countries such as the UK and the US because of shared goals and values, one being to provide more inclusive financial services to the general public. Having stood the test of time for 12 years, 9F's stability and advanced nature have been widely recognized by the market thanks to its financial technology and industry experience.

CEO of 9F International LIN Yanjun said: "Fintech companies bring more convenient financial services to the public and improve service efficiency. The same applies to areas where traditional finance is underdeveloped." Using Fintech as the bridge, the Inc. proactively exports state-of-the-art technologies overseas to provide convenient and efficient financial services for local customers. In Silicon Valley, Hong Kong and Southeast Asia, a "three-in-one" overseas financial service system has been established by 9F International. Bitpay and Wyre are the technology companies that the company has invested in Silicon Valley. 9F Wealth and 9F Securities are the foothold establishments in Hong Kong.  A headquarter has been set up in Singapore. 9F has also co-invested with SBI Inc. in Investree, an Indonesian financial company. Cooperation with G Capital this time is yet another instance of the 9F's technology output.

LIN Yanjun holds on to the belief that real technological strength is essential for Chinese Fintech companies to truly "make it overseas". Innovation helps improve efficiency, reduce costs, and facilitate global cooperation, which in turn facilitates adaptation to foreign environments. After 12 years of steady development and technology accumulation, 9F is more capable of grasping customers' needs and effectuating Fintech empowerment overseas than ever.

The Belt & Road Initiative is expected to bring more opportunities to the pragmatic cooperation between China and Thailand as well as more benefits to the people. 9F aspires to use Fintech as a bridge of friendship between the two countries to disseminate and implement inclusive finance.
