Singapore MP Tin Pei Ling Joins MetaComp as Co-President, Eyes Sustainable Finance Growth

Tin Pei Ling, the Singapore Member of Parliament for MacPherson, has taken on a new role as co-president of MetaComp, a digital payment token service provider based in Singapore. Tin announced her move on LinkedIn, expressing her enthusiasm for driving strategic partnerships and corporate development within the company. “Sustainability being a critical global imperative, this exciting opportunity allows me to expand my work into green fintech. I am eager to contribute to the growth of sustainable finance by bridging traditional finance and digital assets,” she said.

Despite being among the highest-paid politicians globally, many MPs in Singapore, including Tin, often hold private sector positions alongside their political duties. Tin’s previous role was as managing director of fintech firm DCS Card Centre, where she served for nine months. Before that, she faced criticism over a potential conflict of interest during her tenure as director of public affairs and policy for Singapore at superapp Grab. Following the controversy, she was reassigned as director of corporate development at Grab before stepping down in August 2023.

MetaComp, licensed by the Monetary Authority of Singapore, offers a range of services including digital payment token services and cross-border money transfers. The company also operates CAMP, a platform designed to connect traditional finance with digital assets. MetaComp’s parent company, MVGX Holdings, runs the Metaverse Green Exchange, a recognized market operator and capital market services provider. The exchange focuses on securities, tokens, and digital assets, including voluntary carbon credits and hash rate.

Tin’s political career began in 2011 when she entered parliament at the age of 27. She currently serves as the Chairperson of the Government Parliamentary Committee (GPC) for Communications & Information and is a member of the GPC for Culture, Community & Youth. Her new role at MetaComp marks another step in her diverse career, blending public service with significant contributions to the fintech and digital assets sector. This move underscores her commitment to driving innovation and sustainability in finance, positioning her at the intersection of traditional finance and the burgeoning field of digital assets.
