Re-Imagining Offshore Finance

Christopher M. Bruner

Oxford University Press

This chapter examines Singapore, a sovereign “city-state” in Southeast Asia that has undergone a remarkable economic transformation since attaining sovereignty in the mid-1960s. Though small and lacking substantial natural resources, Singapore built upon extensive trade history, favorable geography (notably a time zone advantage relative to preexisting financial centers in other parts of the world), and cultural linkages in both the East and the West to establish a leading financial center. The chapter includes an in-depth account of the cooperative public-private endeavor to develop an “Asian Dollar Market” in the 1960s, and similar public-private efforts to solidify Singapore’s position as a wealth management center in the new millennium.

Keywords:   Singapore, Southeast Asia, Asian Dollar Market, Eurodollar market, wealth management
