KPS Advisors LLC
Mr. Kwang Peng (KP) Sim is founder of KPS Advisors LLC.
KPS Advisors LLC was founded in 2014 to advise a NYC based single family office on their existing investment portfolios.
KP had spent a major portion of his investment career working with family office and high net worth investors. Prior to founding KPS Advisors LLC, KP worked as a Director at Saguenay Strathmore Capital and was focused on manager sourcing, investment due diligence, risk analysis and risk management. Over time, KP’s professional network grew larger and included family office and institutional investors. When a NYC based single family office decided to hire him, KP started his own advisory firm.
KP completed two summer internships at the Greenwich Roundtable and Indian Harbor which provided him a strong head start for his investment career. Prior to an investment career, KP had worked as a chemical engineer at ABB Lummus Global in New Jersey (US) and at Kellogg Brown and Root in Singapore from 2000-2005. After he decided to make a career switch into finance, KP invested his savings and successfully raised money within one year to fully self-sponsor his graduate school program at Columbia University in NYC.
KP earned a MSc Operations Research from Columbia University in 2006. He attended the National University of Singapore and earned a Bachelors in Chemical Engineering in 2000. He is a CAIA charter holder since Mar 2009.
KP also served in the Singapore Armed Forces for 2.5 years as a Combat Engineer. KP was born and raised in Singapore and is fluent in both English and Mandarin. Currently, KP resides in Brooklyn with his rescue Schnoodle Myles.
