Annie Chen

Founder and Chair of the RS Group

Annie is the principal and Chair of RS Group, a mid-sized Hong Kong-based family office. Convinced that sustainability is the defining challenge of our times, Annie believes that one should, and can, “invest in the future one wants to create”. RS Group's mission is to create a paradigm shift in people’s values and priorities so that economic growth will support, instead of jeopardize, human development and environmental sustainability. We believe we have a choice, and a responsibility, to invest our entire capital portfolio in a way that contributes to the well-being of society and the planet, while generating a financial return that meets our needs. We adopt a “Total Portfolio Management” approach for managing our assets, which are fully applied towards advancing the mission and goals of the Group, and our value creation is measured on a “blended value” basis across the portfolio. 

Not only has Annie challenged RS Group to invest its own capital sustainably, she has made conscious efforts to seed/support particularly innovative philanthropic or impact investing strategies to enable the mainstreaming of environmental and social considerations in the wealth management context, particularly within Asia where such practices remain nascent. Towards that end, RS Group incubated and recently launched a platform called the Sustainable Finance Initiative in Hong Kong.

Born and raised in Hong Kong, Annie obtained her BA from Brown University and her JD from Columbia Law School. After practicing tax law in San Francisco and Hong Kong for nearly a decade, Annie joined her siblings in managing the family office established by their parents in the late nineties, and in 2010 established RS Group to manage her wealth.
