August 17th, 2016

EFG Asset Management have appointed Rebekah Chuan as the new Chief Executive Officer and Head of Investments for EFGAM Singapore.

Chuan brings 27 years of investment experience with her to the firm. Prior to her new role, she worked at DBS where she was building the firm’s discretionary portfolio management platform. She was also Head of Discretionary at HSBC (Suisse) Private Bank in Singapore for ten years, as well as having worked at Newton Investment Management, AXA Investment Management and Aviva Investors.

Moz Afzal, the Global CIO at EFGAM, commented how Chuan’s hire reflects the firm’s desire to extend its local investment capabilities. He said: “Over the past few years, where Asian markets have had a rough time, we have taken a contra-cycle view of increasing our investment talent in Asia across fixed income, equities and portfolio management.”

Chuan added: “Asian investors are growing increasingly sophisticated and discerning in their selection of institutional and discretionary portfolio management services.”

Over the last five years EFGAM has increased its capabilities in Portfolio Management, Investment Research, Sales and Infrastructure Support in the region.
