Prior to joining Korea's flagship sovereign wealth fund, the KIC, Dr. Eun served as an Executive Director at the World Bank, representing 14 countries within the Asia-Pacific region, advocating the importance of supporting financial sector development amongst developing economies to maximize limited resources - including private capital - while also bolstering private sector development. Dr. Eun boasts an illustrious career within the Korean government going back to 1984. Most recently, as Deputy Minister for International Affairs, he led the formation of effective policies designed to weather sharp global financial headwinds. Dr. Eun also served in numerous pivotal roles furthering international and regional cooperation as a G20 Finance Deputy Minister and ASEAN+3 Deputy Minister for Finance. As Director General of the International Finance Bureau, Dr. Eun helped advance Korea’s macro-prudential measures, also notably strengthening regional cooperation via the CMIM mechanism. Under his leadership, Korea’s credit rating recorded the highest level ever achieved. Dr. Eun also served as Assistant Secretary to the President for Economic Policies, Office of the President. Dr. Eun holds a B.A. in Economics from Seoul National University and a Ph.D. in Economics from the University of Hawaii.
As I believe Dr. EUN's talk will highlight many of the key issues most relevant to today's global markets while providing us with valuable investment strategy insights, I strongly urge all SFF members to please attend. As always, your prompt RSVP would be greatly appreciated.
