Leaders in Business Lunch

Singapore’s Financial Ecosystem ft. Mr. Ravi Menon, Managing Director, MAS

In the latest instalment of our flagship Leaders in Business Lunch series we were joined by Mr. Ravi Menon, Managing Director of Monetary Authority of Singapore (MAS). Earlier this year Mr. Menon was awarded the title of Central Banker of the Year for the APAC region by the prestigious UK magazine, The Banker, for leading a cutting-edge regulatory approach to FinTech while maintaining macroeconomic stability. During his speech Mr. Menon will be sharing Singapore’s vision as a financial centre and how the partnership between Singapore and the UK can build upon the Government’s vision for the country as the UK looks to Asia for new opportunities.

A moderated conversation with Mr. Ravi Menon and Mr. Shanker Iyer OBE, Founder and Chairman of The Iyer Practice and former British Chamber of Commerce President followed with opportunities for the audience to raise questions.
