The ACS OBA - Far East Organisation Joint Event

ACS OBA - Far East Organisation Joint Event

The ACS OBA – Far East Organisation (FEO) Singapore Economic & Real Estate Market Update Seminar and Members’ Networking Event was successfully held on 18 August 2017 at the Fullerton Hotel Straits Room.

The evening started with members streaming in even before the doors were opened and after networking for more than an hour over the fine wines, the 50 members present ceased being strangers. The seminar was opened by President of the OBA, Lim Tat and FEO’s Senior Property Manager Ms Tan Siew Keow.

Suan Teck Kin, Head Research at UOB, gave members a broad overview of the economic outlook for Singapore in 2017 and beyond, while Alan Cheong (ACJC ‘83), Senior Director of Research & Consultancy at Savills, shared with us his insights into the residential and commercial property sectors in Singapore, and where he saw the property market heading in these two asset classes.

After the two talks and dessert, members continued with networking and sharing of views about property investments with the speakers, fellow members, bankers and senior FEO representatives.

We received excellent comments from members that the talks were informative and insightful, and certainly timely at a point when property markets seemed to be turning around.

We would like to express our appreciation to FEO for collaborating with the ACS OBA and organising the event and sponsoring the wines, dinner and wonderful venue. We look forward to more joint events with FEO in the near future.

As always, the ACS OBA strives to strengthen its ties through networking events and we encourage ACSians to come forward with ideas and offers of expertise and sponsorship. Please send an email to to register your interest for future occasions.
