TAPPING INTERNATIONAL EXPERTISE
 
International Advisory Panel
 
Set up in 1998, the IAP provides valuable advice on Singapore’s financial sector reforms and strategies. The panel also provides important feedback to help Singapore and MAS keep abreast of market developments and policies in major international financial centres. The panel held its fourth meeting on 13 October 2003.

The IAP considered the impact of global trends such as financial dis-intermediation, where companies bypass middlemen like banks, and directly tap the markets for funds. Other topics discussed were outsourcing by financial institutions and the increasing popularity of alternative investments, as well as regional developments, such as the emergence of China and India.
