There will be two additions to the ranks of NUS senior management in the coming months, taking the University to greater heights.
Ms Jennifer Ong (left) and Mr Kim Jun Sung (right) will drive the audit and investment functions of the University respectively.
Ms Jennifer Ong will take on the mantle of Chief Audit Officer-designate from 1 May and officially start in her new capacity from 1 June, while Mr Kim Jun Sung, who is currently serving as Chief Investment Officer-designate, will officially commence the role from 1 May.
“It’s a wonderful feeling to finally be a part of the NUS family. I fondly remember sneaking into the NUS main library when I was in middle school to be amongst college students whilst studying for my IB [International Baccalaureate],” reflected Mr Kim.
“I am looking forward to meeting many of the faculty and students.”
A wealth of experience in investment strategies
Mr Kim joins NUS with more than three decades of experience driving investment strategy, engaging stakeholders, and building teams across Singapore, London and New York.
During his time as Managing Director and Head of Total Return Strategies at GIC, where he helmed the investment programme for nearly 19 years, Mr Kim oversaw the concentration of investment strategies, initiated a successful co-investment programme, and managed the rapid restructuring and growth of large investment teams across borders. GIC is one of the three investment entities in Singapore that manage the Government’s reserves.
