Episode 10: What distinguishes a good founder from a legendary founder?
Companies in Asia still need to improve transparency in communicating with investors especially in fleshing out details such as business transformation and strategy. Christine Chow, director at Hermes EOS, notes that while boards and the chairman of companies are able to articulate the big picture, how they then go about to execute the plan may not be all that clear. Transparency, she explains is about good quality, hard data, third party verified and followed through with an implementation plan on how goals are to be achieved. Founded in 2004, Hermes EOS provides stewardship services for responsible investing on behalf of asset owners and managers representing 330.5 billion pounds of assets investing in more than 10,000 companies worldwide.

Episode 09: A new hybrid animal in Asia
Takayoshi Futae takes the helm at MUFG Bank as the regional executive for Asia starting July 2018. Based in Singapore, his new responsibility now covers China, Hong Kong, South Korea and Taiwan. In a recent conversation with The Asset’s editor-in-chief Daniel Yu, Futae explains the role of transaction banking and why MUFG Bank is sitting on a gold mine given the US$8 billion it has invested in the past four years into Asian institutions such as Krungsri Bank in Thailand, Security Bank in the Philippines and Vietinbank in Vietnam. Together with its proposed acquisition of a 40% stake in Bank Danamon in Indonesia and its 24.9% investment in Morgan Stanley, MUFG Bank he says, is a new hybrid animal in Asia with a global footprint, strong links to Japanese multinationals and able to access a network of local banks to serve small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) in the region.

Episode 06 (part 1): Securities Commission Malaysia outlines plans for green Islamic finance
Part one of our series The Asset's Daniel Yu talks to Zainal Izlan Zainal Abidin of Securities Commission Malaysia about the country's strategy for socially responsible and sharia-compliant investing. Zainal, who was appointed the deputy chief executive in April 2018, says the combination of green and shariah compliance enables issuers to achieve finer pricing when issuing a sukuk. As Malaysia is the leading global centre for sukuks, it has a natural advantage to lead global activity for green sukuks.
