AmCham Taipei President Leo Seewald appeared recently on the Taiwan Matters Podcast hosted by Nicholas Gould to discuss the potential for Taiwan to establish a sovereign wealth fund as a number of other countries have done to engage in strategic investing internationally.
The notion of creating such a fund is one of a series of “Big Ideas” that AmCham is seeking to promote.
Seewald is a former Chairman and country head for Black Rock investment Management in Taiwan. Other guests on the podcast include Professor Jennifer Wang, former Chairperson of the Financial Supervisory Commission and now the Chairperson of the Department of Risk Management and Insurance at National Chengchi University; and Silicon Valley angel investor and CEO of Taiwania Capital Management Corp. David Weng. Taiwania is a National Development Fund established by the Taiwan government two years ago.
