Attracting Global Financial Talent
 

Singapore continued to be a choice location for global financial talent. The Economist’s “World in 2005” publication rated Singapore as the best place to live in Asia, and the International Institute of Management Development (IMD) World Competitiveness Yearbook 2005 rated Singapore as the most attractive Asian economy to foreign high-skilled professionals, ahead of other locations such as Switzerland, Hong Kong and Ireland. These results affirmed the country’s attractiveness as a destination to work, live and play. During the year, MAS participated in various outreach initiatives abroad and locally to showcase Singapore’s financial sector to students and professionals. We met with finance professionals and students at top universities in New York, Boston and Sydney, as well as MBA students at INSEAD’s Asia Campus in Singapore. MAS will continue to work with industry and other government agencies to profile Singapore in other major cities.
