Goh Yew Hong is a co-founder of Axiom Asia Private Capital, a Singapore-based fund of fund manager founded in 2006. Established by a group of former executives from Singapore's GIC Special Investment, Axiom made headlines last year when it raised $440 million to invest in Asia-focused private equity funds. Axiom Asia represents a new generation of local fund of fund managers that have gained favour with investors outside the region who like the local and institutional experience of professionals like Goh. At GIC, which he joined in 1995, Goh was involved in investments in private equity funds, direct deals and co-investments. Sharon Lim spoke to him in January.
