Lian Chin Chiang
Lian has 24 years of experience in law and finance/investments, having graduated with a Bachelor of Law from National University of Singapore and, subsequently, a Master of Applied Finance from Macquarie University.
Before switching to investments, he practised as a lawyer for about 12 years in top tier firms Drew & Napier, Herbert Smith Freehills and Shearman & Sterling. He has experience in diverse areas, including litigation, commercial arbitration, public international law and mergers & acquisition. At Shearman & Sterling, at the age of 33, he achieved the distinction of being possibly the youngest person to ever head a regional practice group of a white-shoe New York law firm.
After leaving legal practice, Lian joined another boutique investment firm as General Counsel. He was subsequently promoted to Private Equity Director of the firm. In that role, he had responsibility for deal sourcing, deal execution and post-investment project management. In 2018, Lian and a few ex-colleagues co-founded Rivulets Investments. Rivulets Investments has grown steadily since, with three private equity funds now under its management.
