How David is building a better working world

“I’m contributing to building a better working world by helping my clients become stronger and more resilient so that they can continue to rapidly grow and innovate in a very dynamic and competitive Asian market. This means helping them look ahead and understand future opportunities, identify the range of risks they will face in realizing their goals, and work with them to plan and execute risk management strategies to meet these emerging risks. To do this, I need to look across the huge range of skills and experience in the fantastic FSRM team here in Hong Kong, and to a broad global network of colleagues, and bring the right team to the client every time. I always try to make sure that our approach combines real depth of experience with a forward-looking perspective, ideas and insights on the future."
