Investment Strategy Research Center Head Jae-Won Lim Alumnus

The question of how efficiently one’s assets are being managed is probably one of the more frequent queries that most people with a financial life are interested in. An asset manager, who manages their client’s assets and provides investment information, must have an outstanding work ethic and a sharp eye for analyzing the market. In this fall issue of the EE Newsletter, we interviewed Mr. Jae-Won Lim who used his analytic skills as an engineer to become an asset manager and later become the Head of the Vine Financial Company’s (VFC) Investment Strategy Research Center.

Q. Please introduce yourself.

A. Hello. My name is Jae-Won Lim and I graduated KAIST from the Department of Electrical Engineering. After receiving my master’s degree from KAIST, I worked at Samsung Semiconductors in the Planning and Management Team until I joined the VFC Investment Strategy Research Center, and now I work as the Center Head.
