“As CoAssets is branching out into countries like Indonesia and China, we believe that the company will benefit from their operational experience and industry background,” said Getty Goh, CEO of CoAssets, in an official press release.

“Chew’s experience in foreign exchange risk management is essential in our pursuit to make CoAssets a truly regional crowdfunding platform. It is our regional presence that sets us apart from all the other local players and with talents like Dr Chi and Chew, I am confident to say that we are a step closer to making crowdfunding more accessible to users from ASEAN, China and Australia,” added Goh.
