Investment Manager

Asia Pacific Investment Bank







Hi there! Let me introduce myself.

Calton's career first kick-started in the Risk Management with CitiGroup before joining 1337 Ventures as an Associate. Calton spent the last years working with corporations such as Khazanah in their national entrepreneur outreach, Uber and Digi’s ASEAN’s next greatest, discovering key pain points of customers and corporations through Design Thinking, Design Sprints, and innovation consulting with conglomerates. Calton is also the lead in Alpha Startups for the past year to identify high calibre startups to invest in. The Alpha Startups programme has now been utilized as an Innovation platform by the Banking, Insurance, Telecommunications, Automotive and Government sectors to seek out startups to solve their pain points and onboard them into their organizations.
Calton helps medium to large companies understand the organizational structure needed to identify future trends, build capabilities to defend against agile disruptors and critically the culture and mindset required to lead and innovate in adjacent and transformational markets.

Calton is currently a Investment Manager at Asia Pacific Investment Bank, an offshore investment bank located in Labuan, Malaysia, where he structures fundraising deals for corporates, public/private funds, and assist corporates with their banking and financial regulatory needs.
