I knew I wanted to be working with money since age of 12. I was exchanging currencies (HKD vs GBP) in my local bank (with my parents of course) since that age. I completed my undergraduate degree (BA) and Master (MSc) in International Finance and Capital markets and started my first job in Banking, the rest is history! I did a full interview here all about my journey into Sustainable Finance if you'd like to know more: https://www.localhood.or
I really enjoy being able to align my personal values with my work. To be able to leverage my financial skillset, as well as working for a company that cares about the environment and sustainability is a dream come true. Being the Sustainable Finance Head in Asia in Standard Chartered has provided me the platform to do exactly that.
My most memorable moment at the bank is when I received a call from Bill Winter, a few months in after joined the bank. He called to introduce himself and check in with me, I was so surprised to receive the call and very impressed with Bill’s leadership in making such call to me and it also showed me how much the bank focuses and cares about Sustainable Finance.
Driving Sustainable Finance is the right thing to do and that’s what I do every day, in order to truly scale we must work together and collaborate both inside and outside the bank. I would never settle for getting us towards the US$1bn SF revenue aspiration.
