Why choose us?

If you’re an expat living in Hong Kong, your financial needs and goals will likely be somewhat complex. Managing your assets, both back home and here in your new residence, will present unique challenges.

When it comes to finding a financial professional who can look at your situation holistically – both in terms of your financial arrangements and your unique situation – you need someone with specific expertise.

That’s where we come in.


Private Capital's Boardroom located in Central.

We’re independent

We are proud to offer advice and investment and planning services that are unrestricted and unbiased. Unlike the service a restricted adviser or bank would provide, we can make bespoke recommendations that are unique to your circumstances and goals. We therefore have the freedom to affect real change in our clients’ lives.

We’re a truly fiduciary firm

Unlike traditional financial advisers, our service is truly fiduciary; it goes beyond short-term fixes, such as purchasing one-off products like pensions. Instead, a fiduciary is required to act in their client’s best interest, providing full transparency and disclosure of all fees. Put simply, we do what is right for you, not what is right for us.

We’re pioneers of fee-only evidence-based investment advice

We were the first firm to establish fee-only investment advice in Hong Kong. Not only that, but our investment approach takes advantage of sensible, well-diversified, low-cost portfolios backed by decades of research and practical experience.
