MAS 50th Anniversary

Serving our Nation, Securing our Future


2021 marks MAS’ 50th anniversary (MAS50). To commemorate this significant milestone, a specially-designed MAS50 logo was selected from competing entries submitted by MAS officers in July 2020.  The winning entry is from Star Chen.

“Serving Our Nation, Securing Our Future” is the tagline for MAS' Golden Jubilee. The winning design and theme look back on MAS' service to our nation for the last 50 years and look forward to our future with a strong commitment to ensuring Singapore's economic security. The five overlapping curves in the logo indicate the five decades of MAS' service, ending off at the “5” and is left open to represent a continuing chapter of progress and possibilities heading into the future. 

Chairman and MD's Messages



Mr Tharman Shanmugaratnam


This year marks the 50th anniversary of MAS. We have come a long way since our beginnings in 1971. MAS has progressively over the five decades become a central bank and integrated financial supervisor of repute amongst its international peers, a source of confidence domestically, and an active partner with the industry in developing opportunities for Singapore’s growth as an international financial centre. MAS’ standing is testimony to the vision, dedication, and commitment to excellence of its past leaders and staff.



Ravi Menon Managing Director MAS

Mr Ravi Menon

We commemorate this milestone with a range of activities to reflect on the journey we have taken and to thank all our partners who have walked with us and helped us on this journey.  Like the rest of Singapore, MAS has come a long way.  My colleagues and I are deeply conscious of the legacy which we have inherited and will continue to do our best for Singapore.
