Generating an Australian presence in Singapore and Kuala Lumpur
Asian industries wishing to access the capital markets of Australia


Michael Owen

I've learned so much about the Asian mindsets and cultures.  Every day I see opportunities across Asia, for either industry disruption, aggregation or for Australian companies to initiate a presence.


Michael initially worked in the FinTech sector for a large US Corporation, before taking up a role with a respected UK-based Investment Bank. 
He has been based in Singapore, Hong Kong, Malaysia & Indonesia at various times over the last 28 years, initially heading up the Asia Region for a UK-based provider of software-based Investment Banking solutions. In Hong Kong he spearheaded the push into China for a US-based provider of Investment Banking services & solutions.
He then undertook several corporate advisory & turnaround roles, which included the establishment of a new entity in Asia Pacific Region for an LSE-listed company, then the restructuring of a Swedish/French firm across the Asia Pacific Region.
He helped to formulate & deliver the Asia Strategy for one of Australia’s largest banking & financial services groups, subsequently heading up Strategic Projects across Asia for the largest global FinTech.


Michael has worked across several disciplines, with an emphasis on Banking & Financial Services, Information Technology, Software Development, and technological innovation.  Also with deep experience in restructuring, capital raising and M&A.  
He is a member of a start-up group based in Singapore, assessing their opportunity-flow, help them to develop & implement their business models and ultimately their ‘go-to-market’ strategies. 
His many years experience across Asia & the Indian Subcontinent has enabled Michael to assist many foreign companies - large Fortune 500 down to start-ups - to understand the idiosyncrasies of doing business across Asia and to implement winning strategies.
