Biography

​As Group Head of DBS' Capital Markets Group, Seat Moey oversees and supervises several teams across Asia responsible for advisory and capital markets, including structuring and executing equity fund raising activities for companies, REITs and Business Trusts, as well as securities businesses. Seat Moey's extensive experience also includes structuring and originating debt and equity-linked debt issues, and structured finance.

Seat Moey has been with DBS for over 20 years and was involved in the first property securitisation in Singapore in 1999, and was also part of the team that pioneered the REIT and Business Trust markets in Singapore.

Since the landmark IPO of CapitaMall Trust in 2002, under Seat Moey's leadership, DBS has continued to be involved in many key REIT IPO transactions which has continued to add to the growing staple of REITs listed in Singapore.

Recent IPOs lead-managed by DBS include the listing of Netlink NBN Trust (largest IPO in Singapore since 2011), Keppel-KBS US REIT and Cromwell European REIT (the first listed REIT comprising a diversified Pan-European portfolio at IPO) on the SGX.

The team's footprint extends beyond Singapore and landmark transactions include DBS' participation as the Joint Global Coordinator for the world's largest share offering since 2014 in the US$7.2 billion IPO of Postal Savings Bank of China, the financial adviser to the sponsor of Guangzhou Investment Trust (Yue Xiu REIT), the first cross border REIT in Hong Kong, the IPO of Starhill REIT in Malaysia and CPN Retail Property Fund in Thailand.
