Prior to his current appointment, Yap was president of CapitaLand Financial, overseeing the group’s fund management business.

Yap holds a bachelor of science in estate management (honours) and a master of science in project management from the National University of Singapore.

CLD has a portfolio worth S$21.8 billion (US$16.4 billion) as at December 31 2022, focusing on its core markets of Singapore, China and Vietnam.
