The programme will enable leaders to handle the growing complexities faced by financial institutions in the region.

Asian financial leaders are now faced with growing complexities due to the need to transform their businesses to keep up with regulations and competition. Understanding this, the Monetary Authority of Singapore (MAS) has mandated TMS Academy and Singapore Management University (SMU) to develop a programme to help upcoming Asian financial leaders to address these challenges.

Called the Asian Financial Leaders Programme (AFLP), the programme aims to prepare senior-level talent in Asia's financial sector to assume leadership positions, and handle the complexities of both regional and global economic landscapes. It includes industry visits to China, Indonesia, Switzerland and the US, where participants will have the opportunity to interact with global thought leaders, practitioners and regulators.

"Combining academic rigour with industry insights, the AFLP will equip finance professionals with the knowledge to navigate the diverse business, regulatory, and legal environment in the region, as well as globally," said Ravi Menon, Managing Director of MAS.

To be launched in November this year, the programme will span 22 days over an eight-month period. It will be open to those in the banking, insurance, investments and private equity sector. Upon completion of the programme, participants will be awarded three certificates from TMS-SMU, IMD business school and The Wharton School of the University of Pennsylvania.
