• 2022 In Review: Reflecting on a Year of Growth and Innovation

    As 2022 comes to a close, it’s a good time to reflect on the progress and achievements of our company. This year has been an exciting year for us at JurisTech, as we adjusted from the lockdowns of the COVID-19 pandemic to streamlining new business operations. Let’s take a look at some of the key events and achievements that shaped JurisTech in 2022. 

    1. Appointment of JurisTech’s Chief Innovation Officer (CINO), Chief Information Officer (CIO), and Chief Product Officer (CPO)

    We started the year with the addition of 3 new positions into our C-suite – Chief Information Officer (CIO), Chief Innovation Officer (CINO), and Chief Product Officer (CPO). They are helmed by Kiarash Razaghiaval, Hosein Abedinpourshotorban, and Tan Yan Lun respectively. Their individual contributions towards our company as a whole make them a formidable force to be reckoned with, and we are confident that we can expedite our company goals under the combined leadership of our C-suite members. 

    1. JurisTech Partners With Mambu to Drive Innovation in Malaysia’s Digital Banking Ecosystem 

    On the 6th of April, we partnered up with Mambu with the goal of being at the forefront of driving innovation in Malaysia’s digital banking ecosystem. With Malaysia becoming the third country within the ASEAN region to issue digital banking licenses, it created an opportunity to partner with Mambu to transform and revolutionise the digital banking ecosystem by providing high-impact solutions. Alongside Mambu’s expertise in cloud-native core banking platforms, we aim to work together in propagating innovative change within the Malaysian digital banking ecosystem, by advocating for financial inclusion within the underbanked community.
