    Tomorrow’s leaders – what will Asia mean?

    Asia’s share of the global economy is set to rise exponentially over the coming decades. According to the OECD by 2030 Asia will account for around 66 per cent of the world’s middle-class population bringing with it a need for infrastructure and financial services, accompanied by an increased demand for consumer goods. To ensure future growth multinational companies from all sectors are expected to look to these emerging markets.

    Sharing his thoughts on what the rise will mean for the next generation of global business leaders, Asia House is delighted to welcome former Lloyds Bank chairman Sir Win Bischoff as guest of honour at a networking reception in partnership with the AIG Young Professionals Group on Monday 14 December.

    Sir Win is Chairman of the Financial Reporting Council in the United Kingdom and Chairman of JP Morgan Securities plc. He was previously Chairman of Lloyds Banking Group plc (2009-2014). Read an interview with him when he was in that role on the Asia House website here.

    Sir Win has substantial experience of leading complex international boards. His background spans a range of sectors, including banking and capital markets, finance and government regulation and public policy. He was CEO and then Chairman of Schroders plc (1984-2000), Chairman of Citigroup Europe (2000-2009) and interim CEO and then Chairman of Citigroup Inc (2007-2009).

    The reception will welcome young professionals from across all sectors including financial and professional services, construction, retail, technology, and government and policy to network and engage on the subject of Asia’s growth.

    This event is by invitation only. For more information please contact the Business & Policy team at business.policy@asiahouse.co.uk.
