Venue & Accomodation
The Sim Kee Boon Institute for Financial Economics (SKBI) is the premier Asian institute for research and training in financial economics.
It is the think-tank in Singapore Management University (SMU) that spearheads and excels in cutting-edge research in finance and financial markets which is of strategic and practical relevance to the Singapore and regional economies.
Supported by our faculty and in collaboration and partnership with industry experts, relevant government bodies and other world-renowned research agencies, the Institute conducts fundamental and applied research which aims at solving real-world issues. Besides research, SKBI also actively engages in training and consultancy, executive education and research dissemination through organising courses, seminars and conferences. Our purpose-oriented activities are designed to serve as enablers in bridging the gap between theory and practice and to act as accelerators in helping to shape financial policies and regulations, which are especially important given the uncertainty in the global markets.
Singapore Changi Airport (IATA: SIN) is the primary civilian airport in the Republic of Singapore. It is a major aviation hub and the majority of international air-carriers are being served.
Singapore Changi Airport is very well connected to the city of Singapore with taxis, public buses and train. For more information please visit the airport’s website.
Will be announced shortly.
All international participants need to make sure that they comply with the immigration policies of the Republic of Singapore.
