"Our learning journey is a lifelong one. With international standards on risk management continuously evolving, we cannot remain static but must keep up with the latest regulations and best practices globally. I believe in reading extensively on international practices, developments and standards relating to AML/CFT, as well as finance, on a wider front. I'm glad that I could help in enhancing the risk management practices and standards in Singapore to keep pace with the ever-changing environment."
