Avisekh Biswas – Head of Data Enablement & Governance, Asia Data Office | Manulife | Hong Kong

I have more than 21 years of experience in Data Management, Regulatory Compliance and Customer Experience, of which 17 years are in the Financial Industry. When it comes to data, I perhaps have done it all – from working with small businesses to get them online in early 2000s, to leading large scale transformation for Banks asbanking graduallyshifted from brick-and-mortar branches to e-banking, to now enabling data for Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning solutions for Customer Experience, Regulatory Reporting, and a host of other capabilities.

While doing all these, I also found time to earn my undergraduate degree, post-graduate diploma and other certifications.

For 10 years, I have been a champion of sustainable environment practices and for the last 3 years, I have also actively advocated for Diversity & Inclusion in my workplace.

My hobbies are reading – my personal book collection is close to 1000 (excluding e-books) and collecting 1:18 scale diecast cars. Recently I have also taken up photography using my mobile and my drone.
