How Mark is building a better working world

“In the Asia-Pacific region, one of the biggest challenges in the wealth and asset management arena is the level of education and understanding. As a start-up mentor, university lecturer and industry speaker, I feel that it is important to give back and invest time to help raise standards and share best practices around governance, technology, risk management and what the future will likely bring. By sharing such insights, we can help drive change across a key industry that will provide for a growing region’s individual life goals and retirement plans while putting wellness choices into the hands of the people.”
