The Singapore-based investment management firm has named Eric Goh as investment strategist and senior client advisor.

In his new role, Goh will focus on the firm’s investment advisory platform and develop market views, investment strategies and product solutions for clients.

“The position of an investment strategist is a newly-created one and it is part of our expansion plan,” a spokesperson told FSA.

The expansion of the team reflects its belief in the growth potential of the asset management industry, she added.

Goh has 20 years of private banking experience in investment advisory, investment portfolio management, client relationship management, business team building and thought leadership.

Prior to joining Thirdrock, Goh was the head of the investor team for Southeast Asia at J.P. Morgan Private Wealth Management and was previously the head of investment advisory at BNP Wealth Management.

Goh also held similar roles in multi-asset class advisory at UBS Wealth Management, HSBC Private Bank, as well as FX sales and advisory at Republic National Bank of New York and DBS Private Bank.

“[Goh’s] depth of experience and deep understanding of the markets will significantly enhance our ability to offer clients best-in-class investment insights and advice,” said Jason Lai, CEO and founder at Thirdrock.

The firm is an independent investment management company, with a focus on servicing and advising accredited investors and coporate clients globally. 

Thirdrock has both a wealth management platform and a funds management platform. 

It was founded in 2010 originally as a multi-family office servicing a handful of Asian ultra-high-net-worth families.
