About WMI

Our Vision  

Be Asia's centre of excellence for wealth management education and research.

Our Mission

Expand and deepen the skills and expertise of professionals in the wealth management industry through continuing professional education, research, expert forums and consulting services.

Our History

With the support of Temasek and GIC, the Wealth Management Institute (WMI) was established in 2003 to catalyse Singapore’s growth ambition as a premier international wealth management centre. In close collaboration with Monetary Authority of Singapore (MAS), the Institute of Banking & Finance (IBF) as well as the Wealth Management industry, WMI has played an instrumental role in expanding and deepening the skills and expertise of professionals in the industry through our comprehensive suite of practice-based programmes.

Since inception, WMI has benefited much from the stewardship and leadership provided by Temasek and GIC to build its capabilities and industry network. We have developed deep connections and fostered rich networks with industry thought leaders, senior practitioners, regulators as well as academics. 

Under the Temasek Regional Regulators Scholarship (TRRS) programme, sponsored by Temasek Foundation Connects, we have contributed to the building of strong bonds amongst regional regulators and nurturing a steady pipeline of promising Asian central bankers. Over 100 scholars from 18 central banks and financial regulatory institutions have graduated from our programmes. WMI's ​alumni now boast more than 14,500 finance professionals from over 100 financial institutions, across 23 countries. Our Master of Science in Wealth Management programme, in partnership with Singapore Management University, has been ranked first in Asia and third in the world by Financial Times in its 2017 Masters in Finance post-experience rankings. Our wide range of accredited wealth management programmes incorporates an Asian focus with global perspectives.

Today, WMI is an autonomous institute at the Nanyang Technological University Singapore. We are a practice-based education and research institute, with our programmes deeply integrated and aligned to serve the needs of the industry. Our focus is on the continuing education of wealth managers towards developing mastery in wealth and asset management. Our clients span countries beyond Singapore, to the rest of Asia. Our classes cover a wide range of topics from investment products, portfolio allocation, client engagement, trust and estate planning, to risk management.
