Australian-listed CoAssets Limited, a crowdfunding platform specializing in real estate and small medium-sized enterprises (SME) deals announces the appointment of Tommy Teo as its new Chief Financial Officer (CFO).
Teo’s joining is timely in taking CoAssets through its next phase of growth as the company looks into creating a strong organizational framework (post listing) and increasing its investment offering such as plans of launching its own regional debt fund within the region.
Teo brings a strong set of financial experiences to CoAssets. This includes past roles in Global Commodities Finance at Oversea-Chinese Banking Corporation (OCBC), Commodity Portfolio Management at ABN AMRO Bank, Treasury Accounting at Cargill Asia Pacific Treasury Limited and Financial Services at KPMG Singapore.
Additionally, his proficiency with a range of financial instruments from commodities to treasury, as well as his knowledge in risk management and audit within the region would be an asset to the leadership team and its strategy going forward.
Teo takes over from Nick Bishop who stepped down as CFO after the company’s successful Australian listing. Bishop will continue to assist with operations in the CoAssets Australia office.
Teo is a Certified Practicing Accountant (CPA Australia). He also holds a Masters of Business Administration from IE Business School (Singapore Management University) and a Bachelor of Business (Accountancy) from Royal Melbourne Institute of Technology, where he received the ACCA Award for Academic Excellence and topped the school in Accounting and Law in Financial Planning.
