Show Notes

There have been many priceless moments during the years that I have been doing this podcast.  I have talked with so many amazing people and learned so much from their journeys and studies and expertise.  It is the wonder and beauty of being a life long learner that keeps me going in the face of the challenges we face in our modern world.  My guest for this episode stands out as one of the most fascinating people I have ever talked with in my life.  He is SO SMART and yet so willing to graciously share his knowledge that you never feel that he knows he is smart.  Or worse that he is showing off so that you will see how smart he is.  He is just full of excitement and wonder and passion for making the world a better place.  Emmanuel Daniel is a global thought leader in the future of finance. He is an entrepreneur, writer, and listed as a top 10 global influencer in the "Fintech Power50" list for 2021 and 2022. 

 Much of Emmanuel's writing is based on his experience both founding and running platforms such as The Asian Banker and Wealth and Society, Emmanuel has had extensive contact with leaders in banking and finance around the world. He won the Citibank Excellence in Business Journalism for Asia in 1999 for his work on how the internet is changing the future of banking. 

 In his first book, "The Great Transition,” published in September 2022, Emmanuel outlines how the banking industry will evolve from being focused on platform technologies to a level of personalization never seen before. He describes the roles of cryptocurrencies, blockchain, gaming, and other technologies in this context. The book features forewords written by former congressman Barney Frank, the co-author of the Dodd-Frank Act set of legislations that regulate the financial services industry in the US today and Richard Sandor, an innovator widely regarded as the "father of financial futures".

Emmanuel travels widely and has visited more than 100 countries and is working on his next book tentatively and titled “The Winning Civilization.” He is particularly interested in Geo-political issues such as in the US, China and the rise of Asia. 

 As an entrepreneur, he was previously a member of the Entrepreneurs Organization (EO), a prestigious grouping of young business owners worldwide.  Emmanuel was trained as a lawyer, has degrees from the National University of Singapore and the University of London, and attended a course on economics at Columbia University in New York. He travels widely and divides his time between Singapore, Beijing and New York.
