Previously…… ( OK  – it’s a bio )

Phil  jumped at the chance to make Shanghai his home over 3 and a half years ago (updated Aug 2019!).

His first business trip to China was in 1996, at that time Shenzhen really was a fishing village and there were only dirt roads!

His career has involved multiple visits per year ever since and he has a lot of love for the country.

His early career saw him undertake roles with NatWest Bank, Marks & Spencer and Nestlé.

He went on to become a significant contributor to the growth of a personal computer company whose legacy lives on here in China in the form of TCL.

Subsequently he started and sold several companies prior to moving into the personal financial advisory industry after becoming increasing involved in the wealth management of the family office of his previous boss who became an UHNW individual upon the sale of the computer company.

He thoroughly enjoys and gets satisfaction from assisting others and would very much appreciate the opportunity to work with you.
