Our values

Independent

Unlike restricted firms and banks, being independent means that we can make bespoke recommendations that are unique to you. We therefore have the freedom to affect real change in our clients’ lives.

Fiduciary

Our service is truly fiduciary; it goes beyond short-term fixes, such as purchasing one-off products. Instead, a fiduciary is required to act in their client’s best interest and help them to achieve their lifelong goals.

Transparent

We were the first firm to establish fee-only investment advice in Hong Kong. Not only that, but we always disclose our fees fully and you will never find any hidden commissions in our service.

Reliable

Because of our international presence, regulation and reputation in both Hong Kong and the UK, you can be confident that we are well equipped to help you achieve your lifelong goals.
