At Fullerton, he spearheaded enhancements to investment processes and strategies, focusing on a high conviction, ESG-integrated investment approach. He was also instrumental in reinforcing the investment architecture at Fullerton, by driving collaboration across teams and investment platforms, and through the articulation of house views.
