Few years earlier, he also helped a Malaysian get into the INSEAD MBA Program, and a Singaporean NTU student into an investment banking internship at a top global investment bank. Both were later investment bankers based in Asia and London. His successful experience with talents of different nationalities towards a variety of career goals has made him THE MAN to go to among professionals seeking to enhance their careers.
Eng Yew is a lifelong learner and contributor. He received his Bachelor’s and Master’s degrees from Stanford University, and has completed the CFA, CFP and FRM Examinations, while still on the ACCA program.

In 2009, Eng Yew led Scholars’ Village to support a number of worthy causes relating to talent development. In July, we sponsored Experiences ’09 – a US universities fair, and offered pro bono career and university advice to students seeking higher education at top global universities. In August, we were a sponsor of the concert of Ms Tang Tee Khoon – a world-renowned home-grown Singapore violinist who plays the prestigious J.B. Guadagnini violin loaned from the National Arts Council. In the same month, we supported a school newsletter at St. Andrew’s Junior College promoting social graciousness. Eng Yew is relentless and passionate in seeking out opportunities to support talent development.
