Paragon Capital Management nets two senior staff from Credit Suisse

The hires are aimed to strengthen the firm’s wealth management and family office services.

Singapore asset manager Paragon Capital Management Singapore (PCMS) has announced the addition of two new senior team members to the firm.

Ethan Lim has joined the company as an advisor, discretionary portfolio management, to provide independent advice to family office clients.

William Goh was appointed as the vice president and portfolio manager for the firm’s Paragon Income I Fund, an income-oriented fund that aims to provide long-term stable returns for accredited investors.

“Their addition to our bench strength is timely as we continue to see rising demand for independent wealth management services, and in particular, family office services on the back of an increase in wealth generation and awareness of the need for wealth planning,” said Paul Lee, PCMS CEO & chief investment officer.

With 18 years of experience in wealth management, private and corporate banking, Lim has worked years as an advisor to ultra-high net-worth individuals in Southeast Asia.

He was a client relationship manager at Credit Suisse Private Bank for seven years prior joining PCMS, and has also worked as a director of private banking at ABN AMRO Bank, and client relationship manager with United Overseas Bank.

Goh has over eight years of experience in wealth management and banking and was formerly with Credit Suisse Private Bank and held various positions, including as a fixed income sales specialist, dealer and client service representative.

He has advised ultra-high net-worth individuals, external asset managers and internal stakeholders on fixed income and trading across multiple asset classes.

Established in 2017, PCMS holds a capital markets services license issued by the Monetary Authority of Singapore and is an exempt financial adviser.
