“The current challenging and dynamic environment has created an urgent need for our clients to rethink and review their wealth and asset protection strategies. Hence, I can’t wait to work with colleagues across different regions to provide the right approach and structures that will ensure resilient wealth preservation, wealth transfer and succession planning for all our clients,” Porter continued.
Prior to joining Asiaciti Trust, Porter was the Chief Executive Officer of STM Group, an LSE listed international group of companies that provides solutions for entrepreneurs and businesses to maximise wealth and protect their assets.
