An independent investor and financial adviser, specializing in investment opportunities emerging from contemporary Chinese cultural rejuvenation, sometimes combined with real estate development. She was Managing Director at Goldman Sachs, and worked in the firm's Hong Kong office from 1998-2005, and prior to this, Vice President at JP Morgan in Hong Kong from 1993-1998. For nearly twenty years, she led equity research teams to cover Asian equity markets, with a focus on the real estate sector in Hong Kong and China as well as attention to manufacturing and retailing.

She was consistently top ranked by Institutional Investors (II) and Institutional Investors' Alpha, among others. She also led research teams to participate in large-scale IPO transactions, including Hong Kong’s two government privatizations: The Link REIT (US$ 3 billion global offering in 2004) and The Mass Transit Railway Corporation (US$ 1 billion global offering in 2000), among others. During her career as an investment analyst she focused on firstly, fundamental company analysis, paying particular attention to issuers’ financial performance and discipline, and secondly, emerging economic and governmental issues that provided context for opportunities and risks, focusing on Hong Kong's structural changes and integration with the Mainland, and China's evolution from public sector to private sector, and consequences of its interaction with the global economy.

Ting has a B.A. and an M.A. from the University of Oxford, where she read Mathematics, and a post-graduate diploma in French Literature from the University of Sorbonne, Paris.
