“We are hugely encouraged by how quickly we are expanding in Asia, and are thrilled to be welcoming Simon to the growing Withers team,” said Jay Krause, Withers’ Head of Wealth Planning Asia.
“Singapore is one of the world centres for private wealth management and someone of Simon’s calibre will accelerate our growth, enhancing our ability to provide quality advice to ultra high net worth individuals and their businesses in Southeast Asia.”
