12 Oct 18 - World Investor Week with Monetary Authority of Singapore


My honour to be invited to share on World Investor Week (WIW), a global campaign of 90 countries promoted by International Organization of Securities Commissions (IOSCO). They are the international body that brings together the world's securities regulators and is recognized as the global standard setter for the securities sector. IOSCO develops, implements and promotes adherence to internationally recognized standards for securities regulation. It works intensively with the G20 and the Financial Stability Board (FSB) on the global regulatory reform agenda. That evening topic was on leveraged investing. The organizer and ourselves were surprised to received many questions online and from the venue itself. After an hour of Q&A, it was comforting to hear the following illustration from one of the audience. It shown how much he has understand about leverage investing in this short sharing session. “It is like having a prawn noddle soup with chilli padi, with it, it will enhance the taste. However, some may prefer not to add chilli padi in their noddle soup. Even if you like chilli padi, it has to be moderate and not excessive.” His illustration has blessed me in return!
