He was educated in Raffles Institution in Singapore and has a degree in accountancy from University of Western Australia. After he graduated, he became a stockbroker and advises his clients on stock trades.

Raffles Institution

How did he become successful?
He was the early pioneers in the stock brokering industry in the 1980s where South East Asia was growing at a tremendous pace.
Having studied in Raffles Institution, he had become closely associated with numerous prominent families in Malaysia and Indonesia. As a stockbroker, his finance & business acumen, unrivalled connections made him an early titan in the industry.

As South East Asia grew, his clients and his wealth grew tremendously. His big investments in Wilmar with his friend Kuok Khoon Hong in the late 1990s propelled him to stardom today, earning him early pioneer of billionaire status in Singapore, and the title “Remisier King“. But without Wilmar, he was already an elite among his stock brokering peers.

Many of the great stockbrokers left the stockbroking industry in the early 1990s and became deal makers or business investors (engaging in various corporate deals including capital market activities) in Asia. Prior to 2000, Asia had almost no investment banking activities.

Can we be like him?

Very unlikely. His hard work (driving taxis, waitering, cooking) in his early days are a rarity today. Add to his network built in the early and slower days (1970s + elite school) means very few client advisors today can inherit such a strong foundation within a short period of time. The additional challenge is the abundance of information and analysis available today everywhere, such that we probably have better chances of bumping into Peter Lim while driving a taxi full-time than be anywhere near what he has achieved.
