Through most of our fifty-plus years in the business, First Metro wanted to be the best. Then we were. Less than a decade ago, we saw that we had achieved our goals, become the dominant leader in investment banking, risen to the top in our field. We realized it was time to raise the bar, to look farther. And so we turned our gaze to the region. Now we want to be a name that matters in Asia. It’s the right time to think bigger, too. Globalization is upon us, and so is ASEAN integration. Regional trade arrangements, not to mention the struggles of many economies around the globe, have helped bring this part of the world to its attention. The opportunity is there for the taking. We will make our mark here. We will make a name for ourselves in the region.
