Wong Keng Siong

Wong Keng Siong joined DBS Bank as Senior Economist in the bank’s economics research team in September 2005. He moved to the Country Risk Management unit in April 2007 and assumed his current position as unit head in October 2007. As SVP & Head of Country Risk Management, Mr Wong’s responsibilities include the assignment of country and sovereign risk ratings, management of country risk exposures and the implementation of the Country Risk Management framework in the DBS Group.

Mr Wong was senior economist at the Monetary Authority of Singapore, before moving on to the private sector in 1992. He worked for a number of top international financial institutions, such as Yamaichi Securities, the Dai-Ichi Kangyo Bank and the Bank of Tokyo-Mitsubishi, prior to joining DBS Bank. Mr Wong is not only a well- quoted economist – due to his extensive experience in covering the Asian markets – his insights are highly sought-after at the policy-making level as well.

Mr Wong has an MBA from University at Buffalo and a Bachelor of Business Administration (Honours) from the National University of Singapore.
