Mastercard Launches Data and Services Hub in Kuala Lumpur to Serve Asia Pacific Clients Beyond Transactions

Mastercard has opened a new office and launched its Data & Services (D&S) Hub in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia, to offer clients across the Asia Pacific (APAC) region a suite of services beyond transactions. The hub will also focus on developing a talent pipeline across various capabilities such as data science, product development, and payments consulting.

This launch comes after Mastercard announced its partnership with Universiti Teknologi Malaysia (UTM) in March to build a Cyber Innovation Hub. The new facility will offer skills training and courses related to cybersecurity to students and mid-career professionals, aiming to build a cyber-ready workforce and strengthen the country’s digital resilience.

The D&S experts at Mastercard globally work with nearly 4,000 clients in over 120 countries, providing solutions that cover everything from personalized loyalty programs to end-to-end marketing solutions. The new Kuala Lumpur hub will support the organization in providing solutions to partners in the areas of cybersecurity, credit risk, and data analytics to help local clients and those across the region to scale and enable their businesses’ potential.

The launch of the D&S Hub reflects Mastercard’s commitment to bring global expertise and innovation to the APAC region while nurturing homegrown talent to thrive in the digital economy. The hub will become part of a growing global team that includes thousands of data scientists, engineers, and consultants and will support businesses and governments in Malaysia and APAC to make more data-driven decisions and optimize performance and profitability.

Fahmi Fadzil, Malaysia’s Minister of Communications and Digital, said that the launch of the hub in Kuala Lumpur is a good opportunity for Malaysia to become a more integral part of the region’s digital landscape and strengthen the local talent pool in this increasingly important part of the digital economy.
