Director and Founder of Flint & Battery LLC invites its clients to join in on this journey. “In the recent history we have seen the global economy recover from the dot.com pile-up, enter into and survive a credit crisis, the US enter into a phase of a difficult domestic economy, the Euro zone run against headwinds,” says Winston Wong. “Amidst this were September 11, SARS outbreak in Asia and the mega-earthquake off the east coast of Japan each left indelible marks in global and regional history. Despite this, global economy will no doubt regain its feet stronger than before.”
