Born and bred in Singapore, Jackie graduated from Nanyang Technological University with a Honours degree in Accountancy. She started her career as an auditor in Deloitte & Touche, and moved on to institutional fixed income sales with Daiwa Securities. She travelled regionally to visit central banks and financial institutions to develop new business for the bank. The derivatives market was developing when she joined BNP Paribas as a private banking advisor. In this role, Jackie designed, marketed and executed structured products for the private banking clients.
She left Singapore to further her studies in Melbourne, Australia and obtained her Masters degree in Applied Finance. On her return, Jackie joined financial software houses Bloomberg and Reuters, focusing mainly on product training. Her thirst to learn more led her to the next job at a financial consultancy firm where she specialised in risk solutions for investment management outfits.
Jackie traded her career for her family in 2006 and has been a stay at home mother to three children. Both her husband and she firmly believe in providing the kids with an environment that allows them to thrive in an ever changing world.
As treasurer of BTSS, Jackie plays an instrumental role in ensuring transparent, responsible and meaningful use of the organization funds. She also actively pioneers new programmes and initiatives that bring much joy to beneficiaries.
