At CPF, Singapore's mandatory retirement scheme, Chua led a team responsible for managing the financial reserves of the organisation, strategic asset allocation and risk management.
During his career, Chua held various positions in investment and wealth management services, including work in private banking, due diligence, risk management, research and portfolio management.
Chua is based in Singapore and will lead project teams across ASEAN and will be a relationship manager for Mercer’s clients in the region, the firm said.
He reports to Soon Kian Lee, ASEAN business leader.
The firm said the new position had been created to address demand for its institutional and wealth management advisory services.
“ASEAN is fast becoming a major hub for multi-national companies and, as a result, our customers’ investment needs are constantly increasing in complexity,” said Jeffery Schutes, senior partner and investment business leader for growth markets.
