The team’s collective depth of experience and knowledge to help clients achieve their financial goals.

Which quality makes you best suited to provide wealth management services?

I have spent 15 years in capital markets as a trader and an advisor. But the most important quality I possess is being a good listener. I think this is a basic yet most effective quality to succeed in wealth management.

Cricket, swimming, biking, and ping-pong.

Roger Federer, Indira Gandhi and Bob Marley. Each one is a master in their own field and have inspired and enthralled me with their craft or personality. What a riveting tête-à-tête it would be!
