Sculptures Trail along Singapore River-From Chettiars to Financiers


This sculpture comprises a Chettiar (Indian moneylender), an employee of a Chinese clearing house and a modern day female Simex (Singapore Stock Exchange) trader. It shows the transformation of Singapore’s financial sector from traditional money lending in the early days to the sophisticated banking services provided by financial institutions today.



The location of the sculpture is along the Singapore River and behind Asian Civilisations Museum.
