Driving CDIB to a Higher Level
Lionel has led the transformation of CDIB since 2006 into a fully-fledged asset manager - building an integrated, international, institutional-grade investment platform and developing a synergistic range of investment strategies/products (currently numbering 12 funds). He oversees CDIB's overall strategy, executive management, and day-to-day operations with a total third party and proprietary AUM of ~US$2.5 billion.
Lionel has also played a critical role in CDF's exponential growth from total assets of approximately NT$270 billion in 2006 to NT$3.5 trillion in 2021. Amongst other things, he has driven group-wide capital optimization, digitization and cross-selling as Chairman of the Strategy Committee of the CDF Board.
Under his guidance, CDIB has delivered superior risk-adjusted investment returns and generated in excess of NT$100 billion in net cash flows enabling CDF's strategic transformation.
