Mohd Naazim Salam


Mohd Naazim Salam is the Chief Executive Officer of CapWealth Holding. He believes that in order to have the biggest impact on the future, one should support the most scientifically and technologically ambitious ventures. His goal: to seek out founders developing things most people thought would not work, yet if they did, would become so intrinsic to our way of life that we would someday take them for granted.

Today, CapWealth Holding supports a wide range of once-impossible-sounding advancements, including nuclear waste cleanup, 3D printing and imaging, machine learning and conduct of microsurgery. Naazim led CapWealth’s investments and helped build CapWealth Venture Capital into the leading emerging-technology research firm.

Naazim began his career at Merrill Lynch, where he worked in the firm’s top-ranked Equity Research group. He graduated cum laude from New York University, and has an MBA from University of Wales Trinity Saint David and  MFin from Harvard University. He has been a guest on the Straits Times, CNBC, Bloomberg TV, Future Business Leaders and Entrepreneurs, and a speaker at Harvard, MIT, Cornell, Stanford, NTU, and NUS.
