Singapore is a popular financial gateway for Asia and beyond. Its strong infrastructure and regulatory environment has put it on the centre of the radar for many businesses coming to Asia. The range of financial services offered on this tiny island include, banking, insurance, investment banking and treasury services.
One of the strategic reasons for Singapore’s success is the cost-competitive, highly skilled and international labour force in Singapore. Singapore also has an open door policy to international talent and expertise. Washington-based risk consultancy agency, Business Environment Risk Intelligence (BERI), has rated Singapore’s workforce as the world’s best workers since 1980. According to the IMD World Competitiveness Yearbook 2010, Singapore’s labour regulations are also the most business conducive in Asia. This ecosystem of job opportunities and availability of highly skilled and dependable talents further entrenched Singapore as a regional financial hub.
