As the United States scales down economic stimulus, how will other countries, especially significant Asian economies like Japan and China prepare for this next phase of the U.S. monetary cycle? In particular, will China which has recently injected liquidity into her banking system, be a global game-changer? Looking at China’s actions in light of changes in the US monetary cycle, how will a smaller economy such as Singapore be affected? What global and local implications will there be for asset allocation, real estate financing and the outlook of the property market? To find out, join us for our NBS Alumni Affairs’ Weekend Focus Point Series on ‘Preparing for the next phase in the monetary cycle’, with our speaker Mr Vincent Kok. Mr Vincent Kok is an NBS Alumnus from the Accountancy Class of 1991, and is currently the Chief Investment Officer of Delphi Capital Management (New York, USA). For speaker’s profile.
