Most of you accessing this page have probably been directed here by me or people known to me. For everyone else, here is a summary. 


I am an economist focusing on the world of investments and wealth management. This means that besides writing for the various media on these issues, I also offer investment advisory services to individuals and companies.  


Before establishing my advisory service, I spent some time at the Institute of Policy Studies in Singapore working for the 2006 IMF-World Bank Annual Meetings held in Singapore.    


Prior to that, I had spent some 20 years in the finance industry as an economist, analyzing and forecasting the capital markets. In the main, I cover the major currencies, stocks, properties and bonds.  


My first job immediately after securing my PhD from the University of East Anglia in Britain in 1987 was as a journalist with the Singapore financial daily newspaper “ Business Times”.  


It was a great experience interviewing the newsmakers. But soon after, I moved out of the media and worked for various financial institutions as an economist.  


Despite spending most of my career in the investment world, I have kept in touch with the university. In 1999-2001, I was appointed as an Adjunct Associate Professor of Economics at the National University of Singapore, teaching the Portfolio Management module.    




About Money Talks 


In July 2007, I began a weekly radio programme with MediaCorp Radio’s 938LIVE.  In these weekly programmes, which would normally run from July right through to the end of October, I would offer my views on the latest developments in the world of investments and economics.  


In these weekly programmes, I have also tried to remove all the economic jargon and simplified the issues for the radio listener. But read the transcripts of the radio programmes and judge for yourself.
