Wife Of DPM Lawrence Wong Gains Attention After Istana Appearance On 14 Sep

On Thursday (14 Sep), cabinet ministers and their plus-ones attended President Tharman Shanmugaratnam’s inauguration at The Istana. Channel NewsAsia (CNA) live-streamed the event on YouTube, showing many of those in attendance, including Deputy Prime Minister (DPM) Lawrence Wong and his wife.

While President Tharman was undoubtedly the main character of the night, Ms Loo Tze Lui caught the eyes of those who tuned in.

Although she only appeared intermittently throughout the stream next to her husband, that didn’t stop netizens from stitching together a compilation of her footage.

The YMCA website lists her as its Vice President since May 2021. Before that, she was a Director at the organisation for five years.

Behind the scenes though, the University of Southern California graduate has over two decades of experience in the fields of finance and investments.

Ms Loo currently runs a Single Family Office where she manages the public markets portfolio and direct investments, as well as oversees real estate assets.
