Mr Lim Hua Min is Businessman of the year!
Our Chairman and Non-Executive Director, Mr Lim Hua Min, was named Businessman of the Year 2017 at the Singapore Business Awards (SBA). The SBA, jointly organised by The Business Times and DHL, is a prestigious business accolade where the awardee is recognised to have made an outstanding and sustained contribution to his or her organisation.
Mr Lim is the executive chairman of PhillipCapital Group of companies, an integrated Asian financial house with a global presence with a full range of solutions covering individuals, family offices, and corporate and institutional clients. IFS Capital Limited is part of the PhillipCapital Group, and the Group operates in the financial hubs of 17 countries – Singapore, Cambodia, Malaysia, Indonesia, Thailand, Vietnam, Hong Kong, China, Japan, India, UAE, Sri Lanka, Turkey, United Kingdom, France, Australia and USA.
Mr Lim, a stockbroking pioneer with more than 40 years of experience, had established Phillip Securities in 1975 and grew the company into the leading Asian financial institution it is today. In 1996, he introduced the first online stock trading platform, POEMS, in Singapore, which was an industry game-changer. His other contributions were as the Chairman of the SES Review Committee in 1997, a board member in the Inland Revenue of Authority of Singapore between 2004 and 2010; and also served on several committees and subcommittees of the Stock Exchange of Singapore (SES). In 1999, Mr Lim was awarded the Public Service Medal for his role as Chairman of the SES Review Committee, and also received the Singapore Achievement Award from the Singapore Exchange. In 2015, Futures and Options World (FOW) awarded the FOW’s Awards for Asia Lifetime Achievement Award to Mr Lim.
In a Business Times article dated 26 Apr 2018, Mr Lim said “Today’s competition is no longer products against products but platforms against platforms or ecosystems against ecosystems.” and added that the Group is still pushing the frontiers with new products and channels and entering new geographies.
Indeed, we are blessed with Mr Lim’s visionary leadership and feel heartened that his achievements have been recognised with this accolade.
