The conundrum of Singapore’s ageing population still stumps most analysts but for Richard Koh, this represents a huge opportunity for himself and Health Management International (HMI). “Singapore’s current healthcare spending is one of the lowest in the world but with ageing issues coming up, there’s tremendous room for growth,” Richard, Group Senior Manager for Business Development, shares.
Richard is responsible for developing the group’s business in Singapore and Malaysia and is poised to capitalise on the upcoming boom in the healthcare industry. “An advantage we have is that despite being a small company, we have the financial strength of a listed organisation,” Richard reveals. This strength has enabled HMI become a force to be reckoned with in the field.
