Axiata Digital - En Route To Profitability, An IPO, And Digital Banking?
Mohd Khairil Abdullah, CEO, Axiata Digital Services and Boost e-wallet
As telecommunication services become increasingly commoditised, the big players have been looking at ways to diversify their businesses. For Axiata Group, this led to Axiata Digital Services - their venture spanning services such as e-wallets, microfinancing, microinsurance and anything else outside the traditional telco domain, with names like Boost, ADA, apigate and Aspirasi in their portfolio of services. That said, Axiata's digital arm is still loss-making and a drag on the group's earnings, so we speak to Mohd Khairil Abdullah to find out the timeline to profitability, what their leading business units are, possible IPO plans, and more.
