The multi-family office has hired Cheam Tze Shen to boost its Southeast Asia presence.
Kamet Capital Partners continues to build its team to expand its coverage of high net-worth families in the region.
It has hired Cheam Tze Shen (pictured) as a client adviser to bolster the firm’s ‘outreach to Southeast Asian families and investors,’ according to a spokesperson.
Cheam joins after a 14-year career at CGS-CIMB where he was head of client relationships for Southeast Asia families, and helped business owners fundraise in primary and secondary markets. He started his career as a China auto equity analyst and led the coverage for companies including Geely, Brilliance Auto, Dongfeng, Guangzhou Auto and Minth.
He started at Kamet Capital on 18 July based in Singapore, and reports to Serena Wong, head of advisory.
Kamet Capital is a multi-family office headquartered in Singapore that manages the assets of several Asian-based high net worth families. It provides wealth structuring, investment management, administrative and philanthropy services and focuses on families with over $100m in liquid assets.
“We are well positioned to ride the tailwind of Singapore’s attractiveness to families for family office set-ups, fund investing, and access to quality private investments,” said Kerry Goh, chief executive officer, Kamet Capital.
In April the firm made its Kamet Long Term Capital and Founders funds available to high net-worth individuals and recruited Liu Yan from UOB Asset Management to lead its sales team.
The funds were previously only available to the firm’s clients: the entrepreneurs behind a Chinese technology unicorn, a consumer company and a logistics business.
