IBF to help financial industry professionals with career advice and job placement

Singapore, 31 January 2018…The Monetary Authority of Singapore (MAS) and the Institute of Banking and Finance (IBF) today announced that IBF will expand its mandate to provide career advisory and job placement services for the financial sector.

IBF will set up a dedicated Career Centre providing advisory services for professionals in the financial industry. The Centre, targeted to be set up by July 2018, will allow IBF to provide a comprehensive suite of services ranging from setting competency standards and promoting skills development, to career advisory, job matching and placements.

As an immediate priority, IBF will focus on developing and implementing professional conversion programmes which will help reskill professionals who are affected by changes in their job roles as financial institutions’ business models and processes undergo transformation. IBF will also provide job placement assistance to individuals, and match them with appropriate job opportunities elsewhere in the financial sector. By working with partner
agencies, e2i, NTUC and WSG, IBF can also help industry professionals to be placed in other sectors. Similarly, professionals from other sectors can be placed in the financial sector.

Given the need to strengthen IBF’s management bench in view of its expanded role, Mr Ng Nam Sin, currently Assistant Managing Director overseeing Corporate Services, Human Resources and Information Technology, at MAS, will take on a concurrent appointment as Chief Executive Officer (CEO) of IBF with effect from 1 February 2018.

Mr Ng was previously the Assistant Managing Director responsible for the financial sector development function of MAS. During that time, he was closely involved in the work of  IBF. Nam Sin’s extensive management experience at a senior level and deep familiarity with the financial industry and human resource issues makes him well suited to take on the  expanded leadership role at IBF.

IBF’s current Chief Executive Officer, Ms Lydia Wee, will assume the role of Deputy Chief  Executive of the expanded IBF.

As this writer qualifies as an “old hand” in observing Thailand with a track record dating back 14 years, it is time take a shot at what may unfold in Thailand in 2011.

The first issue that can’t be answered is the health of Thailand’s beloved King Bhumibol, who is now 83 years old. He is the world's longest reigning monarch, but elaborate birthday celebrations in December failed to mask concern over his health. More
