Acuma Expands to Hong Kong

13 Nov

We are delighted to announce that Acuma, which is currently based in the United Arab Emirates, is to officially launch in Hong Kong next week and plans are being made to expand across the Asia Pacific region.

Acuma’s expansion will initially focus on the opening of an office in Hong Kong.  However, we have far-reaching strategic plans and, moving forward, Acuma will operate across the highly regulated areas in the Asia Pacific region, where demand for expert, independent financial advice from expatriates and locally-based, globally-focussed investors is soaring.

In addition to its current strong and established operations in Dubai and Abu Dhabi, I believe that Acuma will become one the largest independent financial advisory firms in the Asia Pacific market within a short period of time.

This development in the continued growth of Acuma signals the firm’s commitment to offering clients a full range of financial advisory services and expertise, wherever they live, work and/or retire.

Leading the ambitious strategy is the newly appointed director Simon Davies, who joins Acuma from Hong Kong-based Richmond Asset Management Limited, where he was chief executive and director, in addition to managing private clients.  With three decades of extensive and senior level experience at firms including MBA Berkeley Burke Financial Services Limited (Senior Partner), MBA Portfolio Services Limited (Managing Director), and Scottish Widows (Technical Representative), Mr Davies will be responsible for managing and developing Acuma’s offering in HK.

Simon, a highly regarded industry figurehead, brings broad and proven experience of directing high growth companies with skill and ambition, a comprehensive understanding of the cross-border financial advisory sector, and a strong track record in developing and maintaining solid client relationships.

The expansion into Hong Kong is being facilitated by Acuma’s recent acquisition of Global Wealth Management Limited, which is fully licensed and regulated by the relevant Hong Kong authorities. We are currently looking at more aquistitions in HK.
