FOUNDER & PRESIDENT
Lu is a first generation immigrant from China who came to the US on a college scholarship more than two decades ago, after establishing herself as a savvy teenage entrepreneur teaching English in Chinese schools. After graduation and as the Chinese economy grew, she moved to New York City, landed a job on Wall Street and became highly sought-after by many American companies to help them enter and invest in China. She eventually went on to earn her Masters of Science in International Relations at NYU, and was, at the time, the youngest person to present at the United Nations in 2010 (view her presentation here).
She has worked in private equity for more than a decade and raised hundreds of millions of dollars for many businesses including the largest gigafactory in New York State.
Lu is passionate about bespoke wealth planning for families and businesses, with a global, socially impactful outlook on diversified investing. Her career at big Wall Street firms inspired her to establish VANQUOUR as a place of support, training, knowledge exchange, connection, and community for up and coming investment advisors, with a desire to create impact untrammeled by the traditional Wall Street conventions.
Lu lives in Manhattan with her three amazing children.
