This 50-volume series seeks to record, explain and offer insights into what makes Singapore, Singapore. Each volume in this series will serve as a primer on the subject.

FINANCE
Singapore is one of the premier financial centres in the world. This book traces the development of Singapore’s financial sector from its early supporting role in a thriving British colonial trading outpost to its rapid expansion after the nation’s Independence in 1965. It is the story of how policymakers here managed to maintain a reputation for regulation and supervision of a high standard, and yet take risks to innovate boldly and seize global opportunities when they arose.
