He also delved into the family office dynamic between the older and younger generation — both may disagree on certain investments but an open mind is key to innovation and progressive pursuits.

Pinetree’s approach for investments works well with the ASEAN market because of the market’s capability to leap-frog into which phase of technology they would want to get into.
