I have been fascinated by finance ever since I started work. In pursuit of my addiction I have worked in the insurance sector, the central bank, local and international banks, studied at university and participated in numerous courses. I have written, lectured and read about my passion. At the Banking Association I am able to immerse myself with international standard setters, policy makers, regulators and industry experts. Still there is more to learn.
