The Minister dwelt on the need to ensure that there is always an adequate talent pool to replace those who are leaving in order to service clients. “It is our mission and our responsibility to ensure that competence is sufficient enough to service our markets” and “this scholarship project will help in addressing the skills we require in fund administration and accounting”, he said.
