SENIOR ASSOCIATE

With a Master’s degree in Quantitative Finance and a Bachelor’s in Public Finance, my educational background provides me with a full picture of the macro- and micro- economy.

 

My first job was in auditing at KPMG. I had the chance to have a closer look at some of the industry leading firms in the financial and FMCG sectors. The more I learnt, the more I realised how important the commitment to continuous innovation is for conglomerates - time saving, cost efficiency and the motor for sustainable growth.

 

After a placement in credit risk at Goldman Sachs, I then moved to the Investment Banking Division at Bank of China International, focusing on the secondary market and specifically the technology sector. Never had I felt more excited meeting the entrepreneurs and contributing to their visionary and ambitious plans. 

 

Like most children, I dreamt of being an astronaut when I was young. Rejected in the astronaut selection during undergrads was no picnic as I’m still looking forward to the space trip. Luckily there are visionaries fighting for the exploration of the universe. I am deeply in love with the idea that one day I could see our planet from a different angle.

 

I love technology, not only because it disrupts industries and pushes the society forward, but also because it enables so many people to live their dreams.

 

I would describe myself as an introvert with good social skills. Having grown up as part of the single-child policy environment, I am particularly curious to learn more about other people - their lives and views of the world.

 

I am a Travel-lover & Museum-goer; aesthetic genres, anthropological findings and religious differences provide me with an all-round view of the world and are a reminder of the fabulous diversity I live in. 

 

With a front row seat during China’s booming years, I am proud of being a Chinese. China did not follow any country’s model in developing 9.6 million square kilometres with an over 1.4 billion population - there is no precedent. The Chinese way is to open the door, adjust and improve along the process. Similar to building a business.

 

I believe talents attract talents. That is why I joined SILK. That is why I met so many ambitious and intelligent entrepreneurs since I joined.

 

Life is a school, and every day is a school day.
