Wang joined FTX in 2019, and had previously worked as an analyst at Credit Suisse as well as a business development lead at Huobi after graduating from the National University of Singapore in 2015. She reportedly lived in Bankman-Fried’s luxury penthouse in the Bahamas, where the occupants were reportedly engaged in romantic relationships.
Graham is also a former close confidant of Bankman-Fried, and Sino Global had deep ties to FTX beyond just an equity investment.
While Wang helped run Bankman-Fried’s crypto empire, and has been subpoenaed by FTX’s creditors, she has not been accused of any wrongdoing or named in a suit with regard to the collapse of FTX or Alameda.
