“Singapore has a long history of excellence in education and is also a financial hub. We are now living in a complex financial world with excess leveraging and poor risk control leading to the financial crisis of 2007-2008. NTU with its top financial engineering program is training people who not only know the technical issues but the dangers of derivatives and other financial instruments. It was a pleasure to be a part of this program.”
