However, with time, the right guidance, and expert knowledge at the helm, any business, high-net-worth individual, or family working across Asia, can benefit hugely from outsourcing their CIO needs. That is the service that The Global CIO Office seeks to offer to its clients. With a wealth of experience through its team of former CIOs from leading local and global firms, the company gives itself and its clients an added competitive edge in successfully managing wealth and finance. Singapore is one of the most important hubs in private baking and wealth management across the entirety of Asia. Synonymous with strong ethics, financial success, and wealth, Singapore provides The Global CIO Office with the perfect home. The existing infrastructure is nothing short of exceptional, and a deep and varied pool of human capital also make for an exciting time of growth and expansion during the early years of The Global CIO Office’s existence. However, the private banking industry in Singapore and Hong Kong is also fragmenting, and more single and multi-family offices have set up shop in recent years. These new firms are often in need of guidance during their early stages; guidance which the seasoned team at The Global CIO Office are more than happy to provide. As a result, the firm has a constant and steady flow of clients who require the services of a CIO during their development. In the first year of its existence alone, The Global CIO Office has already established a client list that stretches across the Middle East, Singapore, Hong Kong and the UK.

Clients can draw on the knowledge of the firm’s hub of experts whenever required, ensuring superior information and cost-effectiveness against hiring a full-time CIO in the wealth management industry.

It is this level of tailored service, as well as the firm’s own uniqueness in Asia, that continues to stand it apart as something truly special.

Through the offices of its clients, the firm wants to direct investors towards an investment approach that is well-grounded in good processes and makes full use of the very best investment products currently available in the market.

Instead, the services of The Global CIO Office can be taken full advantage of to ensure that every single penny is well and truly looked after.
