At EY, we have made Building a better working world our purpose. With so much uncertainty and challenges shaping the business landscape, helping you keep an informed view of the latest opportunities and risks is fundamental to enabling your success.

This month, we introduce a new quarterly newsletter that highlights financial institutions' growing interest to expand their presence in Southeast Asia through M&As. In addition, we launch a new working capital report that examines how US and European companies manage and maximize their capital.

In Asia, Singapore has been a popular choice for multinational corporations to base their centralized business operations. There are many key strategic considerations, including those of tax and operational efficiencies. We share more details here.

For reasons such as costs, some enterprises have made the wrong business decisions including utilizing illegal IT programs. We share the impact of such unlawful practices and what successful IT compliance programs look like.

In addition, we discuss how a new disclosure requirement affecting companies using "conflict minerals" will affect industries including electronics and communications, aerospace, automotive, jewelry and industrial products.

Lastly, our regular reports on rapid-growth markets and the Eurozone will provide you with the latest economic performance in these markets.
