One of his latest appointments was as an executive director of the New Silkroutes Group (NSG), which was spotlighted in a recent Spiking Weekly Letter.

Mr Lee has a Bachelor of Science degree in Finance from Golden Gate University, and a Master’s degree in Applied Finance/Economics from the University of Sydney.

In a career spanning over 20 years, he has specialised in strategy and value-creation while working in strategic analysis, corporate restructuring, post-merger integration and capital markets financing.

Mr Lee has also been involved in such industries as securities, oil & gas, real estate, healthcare and technology. His experience has been instrumental in his capacity as executive director at NSG, where he makes recommendations affecting corporate policy, capital allocation and the company’s capabilities.

Mr Lee in Action

Mr Lee was involved in NSG’s acquisition of 51% of Healthsciences International (HSI), as reported by Asia Today last September. The acquisition, which was made for about SGD2.17 million, was considered an interested party transaction, as Mr Lee was one of three HSI owners who were NSG board directors.

His latest trading activities include reducing 534,000 NSG shares at SGD0.794 in late December, after increasing 6,000 deemed NSG shares at SGD0.868 a day previously. Before that, he also reduced 142,000 deemed NSG shares at SGD0.857 on the same day.
