As the head of the Investment Division in IPP, Albert helms what is quite easily the most comprehensive analysis team in the financial planning industry. He is also the chairman of IPP’s Investment Committee and takes a leading role in the oversight of economic and investment research. Under his leadership, IPP’s assets under advice have grown from nothing in 2002 to about $1.2 billion today.
Prior to joining IPP, Albert already had a number of accomplishments under his belt. During his former tenure as an analyst at DBS Vickers, he made many astounding market calls on various indices, the most notable being his call on the STI in 1998. He predicted major tops and a market bottom at 800 points. His sound expertise and extensive knowledge led him to being seconded to IPP Capital Management, where he counselled high net worth clients on their investments in the equity market, before taking on his current role as Managing Director (Investment).
Having spent more than two decades delving into investment products and services, including property financing, stock analysis, fund management and investment advisory, Albert is a much sought-after speaker and adviser on financial issues. He is a regular contributor to the weekend edition of the Business Times and is often quoted in the Straits Times and Channel NewsAsia.
