Like all entrepreneurs, Walter de Oude started with a strong belief - The potential of money can be unlocked for everyone, and that existing financial services were not doing a great job at it so far. As founder and CEO of Singapore Life, he has achieved what many thought to be an almost impossible task - starting a life insurance company from scratch. This is a role for which he is very well suited - and actuary and former multinational insurer CEO. Singlife has grown from strength to strength with a fast growing capital base, continuing innovation and strong customer support.
