Ontario Teachers' Appoints MD for Asia Pacific

"Chan, who has been with Khazanah since June 2005, will be joining the Ontario Teachers' Pension Plan on June 1, 2018, as its regional managing director for Asia Pacific".

"I am thrilled to welcome Ben to the Ontario Teachers'". Chan will lead the investment activities in the region as of June, OTTP said in a statement. "Ben's in-depth knowledge of the region will serve us well as we look to grow our investments in Asia-Pacific and support our portfolio of worldwide companies looking to expand their footprint and capabilities in that region".

Lim will also be responsible for Korea and Japan, which together with China, constitute Khazanah's North Asia coverage.

Khazanah managing director Azman Mokhtar said Chan's track record of service and achievements had been vast as a key member, and one of the longest serving ones, of Khazanah's senior leadership team.

Chan joined Khazanah as director, investments and has served in various capacities for almost 13 years. "We wish him well in his career with a leading global institutional investor", he added.
