AMTD, Xiaomi Finance, SMU and ISS promote digital finance leaders

Leadership Instincts

AMTD Group, the largest independent investment bank and a fast-growing conglomerate in Asia, together with leading internet company Xiaomi Corporation’s subsidiary - Xiaomi  Finance, Singapore Management University (SMU) and the Institute of Systems Science (ISS) at the National University of Singapore have signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) to establish a long-term partnership to establish the ‘Singapore Digital Finance Leadership Programme’ to hone the management and leadership capabilities of the aspiring digital finance leaders in Singapore and beyond.

The rapid advancement of digital technologies and the advent of the digital economy have brought about transformative impact on businesses, governments and society as a whole. Faced with new opportunities and emerging challenges, senior executives, entrepreneurs and policymakers have to be equipped with the skills and know-how to adapt to digital disruption and ride the digital wave. More importantly, a pipeline of digital finance talent needs to be developed to meet the needs of the growing digital sector.

With these objectives in mind, AMTD and Xiaomi Finance are collaborating with SMU and ISS to jointly design the Programme to accelerate Singapore’s leading position in innovation and technology development; to steer and conduct activities on Fintech education and professional training for outstanding entrepreneurs and industry leaders, to demonstrate the shared commitment of AMTD, Xiaomi Finance, SMU and ISS for excellence in education and fulfilment of social responsibility. 

During the two-week Programme in each year, SMU and ISS faculty, as well as industry experts, will examine leadership techniques, sharpen digital finance skillsets of the participants, and provide cutting-edge insights into the Fintech and regulatory frameworks in Singapore. In addition, leading technology and business leaders, regulators, and academics will be invited as guest speakers to facilitate learning sessions. Besides interactive learning experience at SMU and ISS campuses, participants will also embark on learning journeys at two locations in Asia. 


AMTD and Xiaomi Finance will contribute SGD 5 million to allow SMU and ISS to build the relevant curriculum and teaching resources, as well as support the cost of managing and organising this Programme.
