Fortune Asset Management has appointed Lillian Chew to the newly created position of director of Europe, the Middle East and Asia.
She will report to managing director Simon Hopkins.
According to finance director Gary Thornton, Chew will be responsible for promoting investment products to institutional and professional clients in emerging markets in Asia and Europe.
“Chew’s new role is part of the company’s planned expansion into additional global markets,” he said.
Chew has over twenty years of legal, corporate finance, equities trading and strategic asset allocation experience spanning the Far East, Middle East and European markets.
Her work history involved the setting up of a niche corporate banking and advisory legal service in ASEAN. This was followed by her appointment to J. Henry Schroder Wagg, London in 1987.
She subsequently held directorship positions at CCF Paris, Mees Pierson, and Merrill Lynch and managed the investment banking division for CCF(HK) Asia Ltd. In 2000, she moved from Hamburg, Germany to initiate the private equity funding for a UK -based internet holding company. Having completed her period of service as head of special projects and strategy, she worked on a number of specialised projects, raising private equity for technology companies in the US and EU.
She joined Fortune Asset Management in March 2001 to establish a client base principally in Asia and the Middle East for alternative investments.
