About me: Before coming to LBS, Nea was navigating the financial industry by looking into democratising investments for the general population of Malaysia. She commands almost 10 years of work experience in asset management (two of which were spent in corporate and business strategy), after undertaking global equity research for eight years. With a curious mind for growth and impact creation, Nea’s career journey has taken her to a fulfilling height, with her prior role as vice president of strategy at ASNB, a fully owned subsidiary of Permodalan Nasional Berhad (PNB).
Having made the shift from equity research to strategy, Nea saw the need to accelerate her exploration by finding fresh ideas and bright perspectives on using financial services to create lasting global impacts across different communities and economic landscapes. That drove her to enrol at LBS, a top-tier industry-driven business school located in the dynamic epicentre of the global financial industry. She looks to learn from renowned faculty members alongside a diverse cohort and benefit from an immersive learning experience.
Outside the investment space, she enjoys cultivating entrepreneurial spirit by exploring sustainable, demand-led business models with like-minded individuals. Occasionally, you can find her catching music gigs around town.
