To expedite our bold fintech and platform-related aspirations in banking, insurance, investments, and telecommunications, we embarked on a recruitment campaign to recruit 300 additional experts with engineering, technology, data and quant skills to supplement our existing cohort of more than 5,000 equivalent skills.
