Xen appoints new CIO

Xen, a Singapore-based wealth management platform, has appointed Kenneth Yeo as Chief Investment Officer.

Yeo brings over two decades of experience to his new role, having held roles in firms such as GIC (Government of Singapore Investment Corporation), where he was Vice President, GIC Special Investments, and Oriens Asset Management, where he was CIO.

In the 12 years he spent with GIC, half were based in GIC's overseas offices in Bangkok, London and the Silicon Valley. Yeo joined Allianz Capital Partners in 2007 as an Investment Director, responsible for its private equity fund investments in Asia.

Most recently, he was a Senior Director at Azalea, a wholly owned subsidiary of Temasek Holdings.

Last year, we had the opportunity of speaking with Katrina Cokeng, Co-Founder & CEO, Xen, in which she explain how her inspiration to found Xen came from a desire to realise her vision of a future of alternative asset management powered by technology for the optimal transparency, liquidity and cost-efficiency.

Xen describes itself as a first-of-its-kind wealth management platform enabling affluent investors access to alternative investments to achieve active returns, and Yeo’s arrival comes to support the firm’s growth, with a particular focus on overseeing its alternatives portfolio.
