Singapore: 190 financial practitioners recognised at Asia Pacific Financial Services Awards
Some 190 financial practitioners were recognised at the Asia Pacific Financial Services Awards held on 22 October 2021, as the organisation celebrates its 30th anniversary.
The annual APFinSA Awards recognises top financial services professionals not only in their respective countries but also across the Asia Pacific region.
All recipients of the APFinSA awards are licensed financial practitioners who belong to member organisations in APFinSA – the largest financial services council in Asia Pacific, represented by the respective national associations.
The annual APFinSA Awards was launched last year with two main categories of awards and three tiers under each category. The higher the award, the more lives the award recipients have secured and protected in the course of their work.
