Kelvin Chiu
Founder & Principal, Silverstrand Capital

Kelvin is the Founder and Principal of Silverstrand Capital, a Singapore-based single-family office with an impact investment mandate focused on enhancing biodiversity globally. His career background is in proprietary agricultural commodities and carbon trading, with returns from this supporting Silverstrand’s impact mission, helping to scale a movement which is core to many of his values.

Silverstrand’s impact strategy prioritises systems-levels solutions that accelerate the widescale conservation and restoration of natural ecosystems.

Kelvin is also the Founder and Chair of Silverstrand Philanthropies, the non-profit arm of the family office which supports nature-related research and capacity-building projects. With the aim of creating more investible solutions to the biodiversity crisis, Silverstrand brought together partners from the investment, business, NGO, and government sectors to launch the Biodiversity Accelerator+ in 2022, Asia’s first accelerator programme designed to support biodiversity-enhancing early-stage companies.

Kelvin is a strong believer in the importance of open dialogue and engagement. He is a frequent speaker on the topics of impact investing and biodiversity, and holds various advisory board roles. In his free time, Kelvin is an avid diver, hiker, skier, and safari goer, activities that fuelled his passion for protecting the natural world.
