[LIVE Event] Singapore Financial Conference 2015

Risks in the financial industry has always been there and if we're not careful, we could all be on the road to another crisis. The financial industry has changed a lot over the years especially after the famous 2008 global financial crisis which lead to the fall of Lehman Brothers, one of the world's largest investment banks.

Singapore Financial Conference 2015 is an annual event that is organised by NTU Interactive Investment Club. My blog, SG Young Investment, is proud to be the media partner for this year's financial conference which will be held conveniently at NTUC auditorium, 1 Marina Boulevard. This event is fully sponsored and you can register for a FREE ticket to the event.

All participants will each get a goodie bag and there will also be complimentary dinner served as well.

This year's theme will focus on how past and present events have shaped the risk and regulatory environment in the finance industry as well as the implications of these changes on participants, whether as a potential investor or as an undergraduate looking for a career in the finance industry. If you're an investor or a student planning to join the financial industry in the future, this conference would definitely be an eye opener for you.

With oil prices at a low and interest rates set to increase, I'm sure all of us want to know what are the opportunities and risks out there. Is the financial industry still suffering the aftermath of the 2008 financial crisis? All these and more will be discussed during the special panel discussion at the conference.

Panel Discussions and Networking Opportunities

The organizers have invited prominent speakers from the financial industry such as the senior vice president and head of retail investors from SGX, the general manager of SIAS and more.

They will be introducing Pigeonhole Live, a Q&A smartphone app during the event so you can fire away your questions instantly and anonymously to their panel of distinguished experts.

What's more, you get to interact with the professionals during a casual networking session over a complimentary dinner. I will also be there at the event as the organisers have kindly invited me as a distinguished guest.
