Dear readers, Mr J.Y Pillay, the Chairman of the Council of Presidential Advisers is currently Acting President of Singapore with effect from 1 Sep 2017. Should there be more than one eligible candidate for the upcoming Presidential Election, Singaporeans will go to the polls to choose their next President on 23 Sep 2017. If there is only one eligible candidate on Nomination Day (13 Sep 2017) for the upcoming Presidential Elections, it means that Singapore will know who our next President is on 13 Sep 2017.

For investors who have invested in SIA, SGX and Tiger Airways before at earlier times, Mr J.Y Pillay should not be unfamiliar to you, for he was Chairman of Singapore Airlines from 1972 to 1996, Chairman of Singapore Exchange from 1999 to 2010, and Chairman of Tiger Airways Holdings from 2011 to 2014. Beside the above appointments in the corporate world, Mr J.Y Pillay also held many important public and private appointments and a rather comprehensive list of his achievements is detailed here .

J.Y Pillay had been described by MM Lee as being “equal to the best brains in America” (as per the last paragraph under “Accomplishments” of the above link).
