About the Speaker:

  • Sam Rhee, Chief Investment Officer, Endowus
    Sam has over 24 years of investment experience, spending the bulk of that time at Morgan Stanley. He is the former Chief Executive Officer and Chief Investment Officer at Morgan Stanley Investment Management in Asia. Sam managed investment portfolios in excess of U$10 billion dollars while working with the largest financial institutions in the world. He is a widely recognized leading fintech industry expert and investor in Asia.
    During his time in Morgan Stanley, financial technology was beginning to disrupt the industry, especially in areas such as asset management, wealth management and investment advisory services. Inspired by the potential that fintech has, he left his role in search of a more fulfilling and exciting challenge that allows him to make a meaningful impact in the lives of others.
    As the Chief Investment Officer of Endowus, Sam is responsible for the company’s asset allocation and investment selection. He heads the Investment Committee and ensures holistic portfolios for every investor. He is a firm believer that individuals should have access to the same knowledge and resources that are made available to institutional investors. With this vision, Sam utilises technology to create a digital solution to financial advisory and wealth management.
    Sam believes that “​the future of financial advice and investments will be greatly shaped by technology, and financial technology companies need to deepen their domain expertise and creatively solve the great problems of our times. This includes allowing each individual to prepare better their financial future and bring value to the greater society.​”.
    Beyond his passion for finance and technology, Sam has a voracious reading appetite.He enjoys outdoor sports with his wife and three children.
