FROM THE EDITOR As we welcome the Year of the Rooster, we bring you investment ideas from the experts to get your portfolios crowing. As with any investment idea though, it’s best to take these ‘golden eggs’ with a grain of salt. We also looked at what’s happening with private equity houses and what the outlook is for 2017. We found out that Southeast Asia is receiving greater PE attention as economies in the region strengthen further, providing optimism amidst a scarcity of local deals. In this issue we also introduce you to the most influential health and fitness buffs in Singapore aged 40 and under as well as the largest accounting and engineering firms in the city-state. We also take you on a culinary journey as we dove deeper into what’s going on with convenience stores and how they might be taking on hawker outlets with their new dining offerings. Enjoy the issue!
