Recognizing the acceleration of FinTech and how it infiltrates almost every aspect of our daily life, ESSEC APAC has recently added a Finance track to its highly-regarded Master in Finance (MIF) program.

Part of the two-day MiF Finance Track study trip in Singapore, we visited the largest asset manager in Europe, Amundi. This exclusive arrangement is an extension of the partnership between Amundi and ESSEC. We were warmly greeted by Mr David Poh and Miss Michelle Ang.  Miss Michelle Ang, Chief Operating Officer of Amundi Southeast Asia, gave an introduction of Amundi, we learnt Amundi’s emphasis in Singapore and its role (Singapore) in Southeast Asia. She also carefully walked us through the investment decision process, distinguishing between strategic and tactical asset allocation. After the introduction session, Mr David Poh, Amundi's lead Portfolio Manager for South Asian investment strategies, also gave us an overview of the wealth management side of the business, highlighting the different roles involved in the wealth management sector.
