DigitalCFO Newsroom | 11 April 2022

John Tsang Chun-wah, Hong Kong’s longest-serving Financial Secretary (2007-2017), has joined StashAway’s Advisory Committee.

To mark the occasion, Tsang will be giving away part of his digital art collection “Choi Yeah” to new StashAway clients.

John Tsang Chun-wah, Hong Kong’s longest-serving Financial Secretary (2007-2017), has joined StashAway’s Advisory Committee. Tsang brings a wealth of expertise that will benefit both clients and the brand.

Tsang has more than three decades of experience working in Hong Kong’s civil service sector across the government offices of trade, commerce, housing, industry, technology, and finance. During his years as Financial Secretary for the HKSAR, Hong Kong’s economy grew at a stable rate, with the government recording surpluses every year. As an advisor to StashAway, Tsang will provide a dependable voice to the public when it comes to investing, having consistently been a strong advocate of education.

Tsang says, “Currently, there’s a lack of sensible investment options in Hong Kong, and not enough people are taking charge of their personal finances. StashAway is helping people in Hong Kong build long-term wealth while making it easy to learn about personal finances and investing. I’m closely aligned to the company’s mission and am proud to be part of this journey.”

Stephanie Leung, Head of StashAway Hong Kong and Group Deputy CIO, adds, “Mr. John Tsang truly understands the public – from their concerns about their everyday finances through to investing towards their retirement. With him joining our advisory committee, he brings us closer to empowering more people to achieve long-term wealth.”

To celebrate Tsang joining StashAway’s advisory committee, Tsang will be giving away part of his exclusive Choi Yeah digital art collection to new StashAway clients who make an investment of at least $50,000 HKD in their first deposit. Owners of this digital art collection can also expect to receive additional seasonal gifts, and royalties from secondary digital art sales will go towards supporting local technology startups.
