Leong Mun Wai was born on January 1, 1959 in Singapore Colony. Leong’s father was a Chinatown hawker, thus he grew up among retired samsui ladies, hawkers, sailors, and opium addicts.
Leong attended Raffles in the 1970s. In 1979, Singapore’s government offered him an Overseas Merit Scholarship to study economics in Japan.
Leong earned a master’s degree in management from London Business School in 1992. Leong began his career in 1986 at GSIC.
Later, he worked for investment banks in Tokyo, London, and Hong Kong, helping 100 enterprises obtain money and go public.
In 1997, he returned to Singapore to become managing director of OCBC Securities, an OCBC Bank unit. He runs his own private equity firm, Timbre Capital.
Leong was named Progress Singapore Party assistant secretary-general on January 17, 2020. Leong ran in the 2020 Singapore general election in the West Coast Group Representation Constituency.
With 48.31% of the vote, the coalition barely beat the PAP. Leong’s team may be allocated two non-constituency Member of Parliament (NCMP) seats since the Singaporean Parliament requires 12 opposition lawmakers and the Workers’ Party won 10 seats as the best-performing defeated team.
PSP chose Leong and Poa for NCMP seats. Tan Meng Dui, the returning officer, proclaimed them NCMPs in 2020.
Francis Yuen replaced him as PSP assistant secretary-general four days later.
