Winning women Asia-Pacific Wai Hun See

Wai Hun See is the Cofounder and CEO of JurisTech, a financial technology company, headquartered in Malaysia, that provides groundbreaking software solutions to banks and financial institutions.

Wai Hun saw a gap in the market during the Asian financial crisis. She seized this opportunity and cofounded JurisTech in 1997. Being a visionary and a risk-taker, she foresaw the future of fintech and the role artificial intelligence (AI) plays in it and took the bold move to build the capabilities ahead of time. As a result, the company deployed its own proprietary AI in financial services as early as 2004, also implementing multiple digital financial platforms to enable financial inclusion. She is considered to be the pillar of positive energy and commitment for everyone working with JurisTech.

Wai Hun holds a degree in Business Computing from the University of Winnipeg with Gold Medal honors. She started her career at EY Advisory Services Sdn Bhd in consulting and enterprise systems implementation. In 2014, she joined Endeavor’s (nonprofit) network of entrepreneurs. In 2016, she was profiled in the Digerati50 magazine by Focus Malaysia and Digital News Asia as one of the top 50 people who would shape the digital economy in Malaysia. She has received several awards, including the Outstanding Achievement award (2018) in the Female Entrepreneur of the Year category at the annual Star Outstanding Business Awards (SOBA), Technopreneur Excellence Award at the PIKOM Unicorn Tech Awards Night 2019 by the national ICT Association of Malaysia (PIKOM) and the EY Woman Entrepreneur Of The Year 2019 in Malaysia.

“We aim to become the best credit management software in the world that provides a full-stack software solution for banks,” Wai Hun said. “We want to revolutionize the way financial transactions are made by providing new breakthrough models and implementing digital financial platforms that enable financial inclusion.”
