For more than 14 years, Chew led the building of risk reporting, research and portfolio management systems at BlackRock Inc. and for the last five years was Managing Director in BlackRock Solutions where he headed an organisation based in the U.S. and the United Kingdom.

Based initially at LOIM’s New York offices and then in Geneva, he reports to Hubert Keller, a Lombard Odier Managing Partner, responsible for LOIM.

“Philip developed a track record at BlackRock in building significant revenue through resilient Risk, IT, Operating and Reporting systems that is second-to-none,” says Keller. “With the understanding of risk at the heart of all we do, his experience and abilities in all these facets will prove invaluable as our business continues to grow.”
