2. Learning Journey to Refinitiv
This was an eye-opener as it was quite different from trading FX via an online broker such as Oanda. We had to quote spot FX rates, forward and cross rates using the dealing system. This hands-on experience helped to complement our knowledge and gave us a taste of how it is like to be an interbank trader.

3. Fintech Festival - Quote from Student
Singapore Fintech Festival (SFF) is one of the world’s largest gathering of the global Fintech community. Alongside with my peers, we were honoured to be a part of this festival. There were lots of keynotes session by different speakers; all covered on insightful topics such as the Fintech revolution, AI and Insurtech. With more than 400 exhibitors, we were able to access quality information from leading Fintech companies (and it was made more exciting as most of the exhibitors had their own unique way of engaging participants – from snacks, or gifts, and even exciting games!).

“The FYP Experience was truly an enriching and eye-opening one for me! It was a module which requires me to step up to a different set of challenges unlike other academic modules as we work towards producing value-added deliverables with a real industry client - Frank by OCBC.
