With the advent of new technologies and being a true believer in customer centricity, I strongly believe we need to build future organization capability by enabling our staff to go digital, be agile, and have a disruptive mindset. In the face of rapid technological disruptions, we need to be able to continue creating value for our clients, affirming our role as trusted guardians and custodians of their monies, and most importantly to help them achieve their financial goals.

I am greatly honoured to be conferred the title of Distinguished Fellow, Consumer Banking, by the Institute of Banking and Finance. As a banker, I believe banks are in a privileged position, able to influence and drive the socioeconomic progress of countries. This privilege had to be earned, by building the banking system upon the foundational values of trust and confidence from its stakeholders. In today’s ever-changing and volatile times, the preservation of these values is more vital than ever, and must be embraced by banking leaders with the belief that this is, and will be, the path to successful outcomes for all.
