I moved to Singapore in 1997 and quickly started to call the city home. It’s not hard to understand why: Singapore is a fantastic blend of east and west, old and new, edgy and traditional. But even after many years here, I realized I knew little about the city’s rich history and diverse people – other than the some typical ‘expat’ experiences. Sure, I could tell you about Singapore’s economy and markets, but could I give you an idea of what makes it tick?
So I challenged myself to unravel the mystery of the city and understand its secrets. This quest to understand Singapore led me to transition into guiding from my twenty five-year long career in finance!
