Singapore one dollar bill

Fullerton Fund Management has appointed Ken Goh as chief investment officer, effective Friday, the subsidiary of Singapore state-owned investment company Temasek Holdings said Friday. 

Goh will provide strategic direction to the investment team and oversee investment performance for all portfolios, including equity, fixed income, alternatives, multi-asset and treasury management, Fullerton said in a press release.  He will report to Jenny Sofian, Fullerton’s CEO, the release said. 

“Ken’s appointment comes at an important time, as we grow our business and respond to the changing environment, as well as needs of clients. Ken’s proven abilities, astute leadership and portfolio management expertise will be instrumental in driving the expansion of our investment capabilities to deliver investment excellence to clients,” Sofian said in the statement.

Previously, Goh was Fullerton’s deputy chief investment officer and the head of equities, the release said, noting he has experience managing portfolios and leading teams across different market cycles. Goh has focussed on a high-conviction, ESG-integrated investment approach, Fullerton said. 

Prior to joining Fullerton in 2017, Goh had senior portfolio management and leadership positions at several local and international firms, the release said.

Goh is taking the place of Patrick Yeo, who is leaving after 17 years at Fullerton, the release said. Yeo will remain at the firm until September to smooth the transition, the release said.

Fullerton’s clients include government entities, sovereign wealth funds, pension plans, insurance companies, private wealth and retail. It focuses on equities, fixed income, multi-asset, alternatives and treasury management in both public and private markets. 

Fullerton falls under Temasek subsidiary Seviora and it has NTUC Income, a Singapore insurer, as a minority shareholder.
