Recently, I was asked to forward a career events advertisement to others. I thought it would be relevant to post the information here since I have previously covered the banking sector in a couple of other posts. The event is being organized by UCL and Contact Singapore, and is about opportunities for post grads in the Singapore financial centre.

The organizers have emphasized that Singapore is ranked third only behind London and New York among financial capitals. Singapore is also not a bad place to live in.
