Event Details

Add to Calendar

The transformation of capital markets in the Asia Pacific region has had a notable impact on the role of the modern day chief investment officer (CIO). With increased transparency of information and a proliferation of different investment products in the past few years, the role of the CIO in Asia has changed not only in scale but also in scope. Today’s CIO must be part philosopher, part mathematician and part historian. CIOs must also be excellent leaders.

We are pleased to invite Mr. Nicholas Furze to present at our luncheon for changing role.
