Born in Hong Kong and raised in Canada, Edwin is proud of his hyphenated heritage. He attended the University of British Columbia, where he completed his bachelor’s degree in Engineering Physics. He went on to pursue a master’s degree in Financial Mathematics and Statistics at the Hong Kong University of Science and Technology, and subsequently obtained the professional designations of CFA and FRM. Since then, Edwin has held various positions in the financial services industry. Currently, he is working as a strategist at an investment bank.
It was during his stint at university that Edwin developed a keen interest in golf. After graduating and returning to his hometown, however, his passion for the game was soon snuffed out by the fast pace of life in Hong Kong. Following an extended hiatus, Edwin picked up his clubs again on account of his good friend’s invitation to join the Society. Meeting the many avid golfers there has inspired him to step back onto the course with rekindled enthusiasm.
Apart from golfing, Edwin is a dabbler in a wide array of interests. In his spare time, he enjoys snowboarding, hiking, table tennis, wine-tasting, travelling and immersing himself in new cultures.
