Mr Raymond Ang has had over 35 years of working and training experience in the areas of accounting, finance and statistics. Just before becoming an independent Training Consultant, he was with the Bloomberg Analytics Help Desk. The job involved training users on the various financial and analytic functions of the Bloomberg system. Prior to this, he was with N M Rothschild Singapore, marketing gold and forex margin trading facilities. Other financial institutions he worked for included Canadian Imperial Bank of Commerce, Associated Merchant Bank and DBS Finance. At his very first job with an oilfield supplies company, he had to maintain a full set of manual accounts. This gave him a first-hand experience in accounting. Subsequent working experience included conversion and computerisation of manual accounting systems, preparation of statutory financial reports, capital budgeting and financial analysis for loan applications and accounts receivables management.
In the area of training, Raymond has conducted public seminars on Credit Management in both Singapore and Malaysia. He also gives lectures on accounting, corporate finance and statistics for universities and educational institutions at the post-graduate, undergraduate and diploma levels. In addition, he also conducts group workshops and customised personal training in Accounting and Finance for corporate clients. Whilst working at Bloomberg, he conducted lunch-time financial seminars for the clients.
Raymond holds a Bachelor of Business Administration degree from the University of Singapore, as well as a Master of Applied Finance degree from Macquarie University, Sydney.
He enjoys training and sharing his working experience with others, using simple daily analogies to make complex concepts easy to understand.
