Bank of Singapore has formed an independent investment advisory council to supplement the bank’s Chief Investment Office’s (CIO) research skills and provide pertinent knowledge to its clients.

The Bank of Singapore CIO Global Advisory Council is made up of specialists from various major think tanks and asset managers.

The gathering of such a broad set of recognised experts to assist ultra-high net worth families and individuals is a first for a private bank in Asia.

It is now even more important for investors to have a comprehensive understanding of both upside and negative risks, as well as structural trends affecting the geopolitical and economic landscape, given the heightened market uncertainties.

Investors will have a significant advantage in spotting appealing risk-adjusted investing opportunities with the aid of timely and varied information.

Moreover, the Bank of Singapore’s CIO Global Advisory Council is comprised of eight individuals with globally acknowledged experience in economics, public policy, geopolitical analysis, asset allocation, and investment management.
