This book provides an analysis of Singapore’s development and success as an international financial centre (IFC). Chapters demonstrate how Singapore plays a critical role in both Asian and global financial markets, despite its relatively small geographic size. The author focuses specifically on the factors that have contributed to the city-state’s success and discusses the policy lessons that can be derived from it. The book describes the historical, spatial, political and policy factors that contributed to Singapore’s development as a leading
Asian financial centre and global city, and will be of interest to both policy scholars and practitioners.
