Ladies and gentlemen, good morning.

Thank you for inviting me to speak at this important investment forum.

Asia's dynamism and growth will be the defining investment theme of the next decade.

  • Asian assets have become an essential component of a balanced and diversified portfolio.
    • The expansion of Nomura's forum from an Asian equity event previously to one that showcases the full suite of investment products in the region reflects the growth in investment opportunities in Asia.
  • Like Nomura which serves investors looking to invest in Asia, Singapore aims to connect investors to opportunities in the region.
