Chairman Emmanuel Daniel, Chairman
Emmanuel Daniel founded The Asian Banker in September 1996, first as an intelligence publication but later adding benchmarking and consulting elements to make it the authoritative repository on the financial services industry that it has become. He sets the broad direction of the Company without managing its day-to-day operations, but is mostly on the road as a speaker on a broad range of issues facing the industry.

Managing Editor Foo Boon Ping, Managing Editor
Boon Ping is the Managing Editor of The Asian Banker, where he manages the company's publication business for Asia Pacific, the Middle East and Africa. He regularly engages the financial services community on critical transformational issues; speaking at and chairing many of the Asian Banker as well as partner's events. He has more than 20 years' experience in strategic brand management, corporate & marketing communication and research & consulting, covering: retail, corporate and transaction banking, risk management, compliance and bank technology.

Our organisation brings together the unique combination of the skills of researchers, analysts, journalists, programme managers and consultants to create a range of creative solutions to track developments and discuss them.

Because the work we do involves collating considerable ground level information and original research, we invest a lot in young people to grow with us, developing insights and interactions on the financial services industry over the years. We have some of the most resourceful and experienced professionals in research, editorial and programme development in the industry.

We couple our ground level capabilities by working with independent consultants either in partnership or as contractors to add real value to areas of research and consulting where actual industry experience and specific expertise are required.

We are proud to be one of the most diverse organisations of our kind anywhere in the world, recognising merit and the intrinsic value that people of different cultures, nationalities and professional backgrounds bring to the organisation.

This is the fun side of The Asian Banker. Here is what goes on behind the scenes of The Asian Banker. We work hard, we play harder!
