Before venturing to entrepreneurship, I worked in Maybank IB in KL and Singapore where I advised leading Chinese and ASEAN conglomerates in multi-billion dollars acquisition financing, cross-border transactions and syndicated loan arrangements. The vast regional banking experience equipped me with strong analytical skills, effective cross-cultural management, strategic thinking and the ability to simplify complex matters involving business and economy.
I enjoy problem solving, connecting the dots, innovating and value creating. In 2016, I saw a gap in the traditional insurance industry and decided to co-found PolicyStreet, a FinTech company which curates, customises and creates the best-in-value insurance for individuals and businesses. The company won the world's largest seed-stage startup competition, Seedstars Global KL, and successfully secured a RM150k government grant and US$500,000 investment from an international VC within 9 months of operation.
As a firm believer of the power of community, I contribute to the FinTech ecosystem as a Founding Member and the Treasurer of FinTech Association of Malaysia, the national Fintech platform of Malaysia. I also advise and support GLCs, international banks and SMEs in their pursuit of digital transformation in the capacity as a Director of Finnext Capital, an innovation enabler and a boutique consulting firm.
