Angelina Kwan is passionate about the value of robust corporate governance to both society and corporations.

“Regulation helps protect investors and promote confidence in the stability of Asian financial markets. And for financial services companies, good governance is essential to successful operations. Clear protocols and procedures that ensure 
accountability and compliance also help manage risk and build corporate reputation. Navigating complex regulatory frameworks and building the foundations of good governance is crucial but by no means straightforward. That’s why Stratford Finance is here– to guide, direct and help implement proper regulatory governance.”
