The CIO position has been left vacant since Dae-yang Park moved to the sovereign wealth fund Korea Investment Corporation as CIO last month.

According to his LinkedIn profile, Lee led Ascendas-Singbridge Korea as CEO for six months until December 2018.

Prior to that, he had worked as CIO of both NH-Amundi Asset Management in Korea and Eastspring Investmenst in Korea, part of UK Prudential plc, between 2004 and early 2018.

He majored in business administration at Yonsei University and earned an MBA from New York University.
