Ricky started his career in the late 1980s as an entrepreneur. Over the years, in his pursuit of investment excellence, he has made various successful acquisitions.
Upon setting up Sun Venture in 2008, with a prudent and patient approach in asset growth, Ricky played a key role in transforming Sun Venture from a real estate investment firm into a multi-asset investment firm managed by professionals. This was initially through notable acquisitions of prime properties in Singapore, which was then followed by establishing the Sun Venture public markets team in 2016 to invest in equities and bonds, to generate balanced returns with a long-term horizon. In 2020, Ricky further expanded Sun Venture by setting up the private equity unit to invest in promising brands in the region.
To date, Ricky regularly offers guidance to colleagues and readily implements changes that matter to the firm, to ensure that Sun Venture maintains its relevance in the industry, continues its positive growth trajectory and develops its staff to the fullest.
