We’re happy to announce that our first speaker of the year will be Mr Ravi Menon, Managing Director of the Monetary Authority of Singapore (MAS), as part of our FCA 60th anniversary series of talks.

A senior cabinet minister is likely to be the next major speaker.

As you know, MAS has been in the news lately because of the 1MDB scandal and related sanctions against errant banks in Singapore, the fight against terrorist financing, and other issues.

Mr Menon will give us a wide view of Singapore’s financial environment with a speech titled "Singapore's Financial Centre: Resilience, Dynamism, Trust" followed by a question-and-answer session.

This is open to all FCA members. 

Seats are limited, so do sign up quickly.

Please also note that advance payment is required for this event.
