MR HO Kwon Ping, the executive chairman of Banyan Tree Holdings, has been named by the Institute of Policy Studies (IPS) as its first S R Nathan Fellow for the Study of Singapore.

As an S R Nathan fellow, Mr Ho, 61, will pursue research related to public policy and governance in Singapore, IPS said in a statement yesterday.

Mr Ho, who is also chairman of the Singapore Management University Board of Trustees, will share his ideas at a series of public lectures over the course of the 2014 to 2015 academic year.

Known as the "IPS-Nathan Lectures", they will be delivered at the National University of Singapore's main campus.
