Singapore Member of Parliament (MP) for MacPherson, Tin Pei Ling, has joined MetaComp, a digital payment token service provider based in Singapore, as co-president.

Announcing the move on LinkedIn this week, Tin said she would be focusing on driving strategic partnerships and corporate development."Sustainability being a critical global imperative, this exciting opportunity allows me to expand my work into green fintech. I am eager to contribute to the growth of sustainable finance by bridging traditional finance and digital assets," Tin said.

Despite being among the most well-paid politicians globally, many MPs in Singapore are known to hold private sector jobs alongside their political appointments. Tin was most recently managing director of fintech firm DCS Card Centre, where she spent nine months.

Her previous role as a director of public affairs and policy for Singapore at superapp Grab sparked criticism over potential conflicts of interest with her being a Member of Parliament. She was redeployed as director of corporate development at Grab, and she stepped down in August 2023, eight months after joining the company.

MetaComp is licensed by the Monetary Authority of Singapore to provide digital payment token services. The company also offers cross-border money transfers, and runs CAMP – a platform that "connects traditional finance with digital assets." Its parent company MVGX Holdings operates the Metaverse Green Exchange, a recognized market operator and capital market services provider focusing on securities, tokens, and digital assets, including voluntary carbon credits and hash rate.

Tin entered parliament in 2011 at the age of 27, and currently serves as the Chairperson of the Government Parliamentary Committee (GPC) for Communications & Information, and is a member of the GPC for Culture, Community & Youth.
