Over 200 clients attended Standard Chartered Securities’ market outlook seminar at Tarindak D’Seni yesterday.

Standard Chartered Securities CEO Brenda Low said, “2020 was an unprecedented year full of uncertainty and change.

“The world was rocked by the effects of the COVID-19 pandemic on varying levels. However, the year has also brought on some surprises and is shaping up to be a good one for some investors.

“While we take the opportunity to take stock of what has unfolded so far, it is also a good time to consider what might be in store for us with COVID-19 vaccine prospects and how it could potentially make 2021 a year of global economic recovery.”

Standard Chartered Bank (Singapore) Senior Cross Asset Strategist Audrey Goh shared the new year’s outlook and market insights.

Neuberger Berman Managing Director Yan Taw Boon presented an outlook on Neuberger Berman’s 5G Connectivity Fund. Director at BlackRock Singapore Chow Kok Fai offered insights on a selection of BlackRock Funds.

According to a Standard Chartered press release, Neuberger Berman and Black Rock, which are a part of Standard Chartered Securities’ extensive list of fund houses, are some of the world’s largest asset managers operating globally and sharing the same commitment to guide clients for investment excellence.
