About us

After 50 years as a private holding company, we opened to external investment from institutions and high net worth individuals in 2009.

Clients invested in our longest running fund, The Asian Wealth Fund, a global multi-asset fund targeting through-the-cycle risk-adjusted returns and the minimisation of unnecessary expenses. Our new funds are more focussed on the individual asset classes of our allocation model: gold, equities, fixed income, private ventures…

Our Asset Protection, Asset Management and Asset Administration services offer clients the core components of wealth management, transparently and efficiently. Their goal is to empower clients with the tools and infrastructure to confidently control their own financial destiny in a supported environment.

Our experienced team of extraordinary investment professionals have deep expertise across asset classes. We are driven to achieve outstanding investment returns within a structure suited to our clients.
