She engages key banks and wealth management players, and shapes strategies to strengthen Singapore’s value proposition. In building talent for the financial sector, she works closely with the industry and stakeholders to equip our workforce with future-ready skillsets across all levels and facilitate redeployments, to create good job and career opportunities.

“The Master of Science in Wealth Management has provided deep insights on both the academic and applied aspects of wealth management. It also created highly valuable networking opportunities, through a diverse pool of participants from leading banks, asset management firms and central banks from the region. The overseas study visits further widened our horizons on global drivers shaping our wealth management industry, and enabled us to learn from the best.

"The quality of the trainers who are practitioners and applied learning approach sets the difference on this programme. What I learnt during the programme could be applied immediately to my work. I also benefited to learn from my classmates during the sharing sessions, their inputs helped to make the programme less conceptual and applying to real life situations. The passion of the trainers in imparting their knowledge makes the learning more enjoyable. I had the privilege to be part of the trainers when WMI developed a new course for Affluent Banking Relationship Managers. It has been an enriching experience for me being a student and trainer."
