stands for “Financial Institutions Directors’ Education” and it generally seeks to enhance boardroom governance within the financial sector and advocates best practices and excellence in corporate governance. Under the FIDE banner, there are two separate institutions providing complementary services to achieve this aim:
- FIDE Programme, which provides structured education programmes for directors and potential directors of financial institutions. FIDE Programme is administered by The Iclif Leadership and Governance Centre; and
- FIDE FORUM, which complements the learning at FIDE Programme by providing its alumni members continuous professional development, access to various research, and other resources that could help members achieve the aim of FIDE FORUM as stated above. FIDE FORUM’s day-to-day operations are overseen by the Chief Executive Officer appointed by FIDE FORUM’s Board of Directors and who reports to the Chairman of the Board. The current Chief Executive Officer of FIDE FORUM is Ms. Lim Lai Hong.
