The fund was unveiled by Chief Executive John Lee in his maiden Policy Address last year. Its aim is to “further optimise the use of fiscal reserves” to promote the economy and industries and enhance ties with Chinese mainland cities surrounding Hong Kong.
Chan, who is in her early 40s, will oversee eight general partners in making strategic investments in sectors including technology, healthcare, logistics and supply chain management, financial services and consumer products.
