I’m excited to welcome Andrew to the FPI team. Having provided consultancy to global wealth managers and insurers in Singapore for the past two years, Andrew is well placed to drive the Singapore business forward in the new strategic direction.

At the same time, I want to express my heartfelt thanks to Chris for his contributions over the past 18 years. Starting out in the UK, Chris has been instrumental in extending our international footprint and establishing our strong presence across Hong Kong and Singapore. I would like to wish him all the best in his future endeavours.
