Ravi Menon, Managing Director, MAS, thanked Ong Chong Tee and Lee Boon Ngiap.
Menon said, “Chong Tee served as Deputy Managing Director for 16 years, across all four of MAS’ key functions: first, in the areas of monetary policy, investment management, and financial development; and then, in financial supervision. He led the MAS teams in navigating the global financial crisis of 2009, ensuring monetary stability and safeguarding our investment portfolio. He subsequently led the implementation of the post-crisis regulatory reforms in MAS, including new rules for bank capital and liquidity. Chong Tee has been an active member in many international regulatory forums, such as the Basel Committee for Banking Supervision and several Financial Stability Board Standing Committees. Chong Tee is a respected leader and a trusted colleague.”
He added, “Boon Ngiap has been one of MAS’ most versatile leaders, making strong contributions in banking and insurance supervision, capital markets regulation, financial centre development, and domestic monetary management. As Assistant Managing Director (Capital Markets), Boon Ngiap led the regulation of capital markets and the supervision of capital markets intermediaries and infrastructure, and championed consumer financial education initiatives. Boon Ngiap represented MAS at the board meetings of the International Organisation of Securities Commissions.”
“MAS is deeply grateful to Chong Tee and Boon Ngiap for their leadership and significant contributions over 35 years each of dedicated service. We wish them the best for their future,” said Menon.
