We are seeing the emergence of a number of emerging and mid-sized corporates in Singapore that are pursuing regional and global expansion. With his expertise and track record, Amit is well placed to support our CCB clients’ ambitions and help them grow their businesses, while taking our Singapore business to greater heights.”
