RICHARD Lin Kwok Wing, the new executive director and chief executive officer of HLG Asset Management Sdn Bhd, believes a person must have passion, commitment and vision to succeed in whatever business he is involved in. 

“Success never comes easy and to succeed in any career or business, one must have or possess these three virtues.  

“One should always be aware of potential pitfalls in life caused by complacencies, lack of integrity, and refusal to accept reality, being constantly in a state of denial,” he said in an interview. 

On his philosophy in life, Lin said one must determine what was most fulfilling for him or her as that would drive the person's motivation in life.

“Don’t be indecisive and waste precious time. The bottom line is to do what is most fulfilling for you,” Lin, 40, said, adding that it did not really matter whether it was financial or spiritual fulfilment as long as one was happy and at ease with his inner conscience. 

Lin assumed his current position in December last year. Prior to his appointment, he was the executive director of RHB Asset Management (from February 2001 to October last year).  

Lin has 16 years' experience in the industry, of which 12 years were spent as an investment analyst under the RHB group.  

Asked on his hobbies, Lin said he had a passion for badminton and played the game with his close associates every Sunday morning. 

He also enjoys reading, particularly business articles and books, to keep abreast with the latest events and products.  

“Biographies of successful personalities also inspire me,” he added. 

On his management style, he said: “Teamwork is most important. Apart from the performance driven culture in the organization, all employees must clearly understand the vision and goals of the company.  

“They must be filled with passion and commitment to perform well in the organization,” he said. 

Lin is married and has four children - three boys and a girl.
