John is CEO of Asia Pacific Marketing Ltd., who provide bespoke investments to HNW clients across the Asia Pacific Region. These include: Private Equity / Traditional Funds / Corporate Bonds and a full range of Alternative Investments, arranged within low cost and fully regulated investment platforms.
His career in finance started in 1986, within the direct sales force of Provident Mutual in Manchester. He was then a founding director of a brokerage for 5 years, becoming a Fully Qualified IFA in 1991. After advising some 600 clients in his first 10 years, he decided to focus on the HNW market and developed a taste for Offshore Investment moving overseas in 1996.
He moved to Bahrain in the role of Sales Manager for a large offshore brokerage, working briefly in Saudi Arabia, Dubai and Cyprus along the way. 2001 saw a return to Europe and Amsterdam in particular, where he became a founding partner of a Pan European brokerage. It was there that he developed an appetite for Private Equity, teaming up with Falcon Capital in September 2004. In early 2009, he relocated to Asia where he continues to advise HNW clients across the region.
John has recently teamed up with 2 former business associates to create Perimeter Consultancy, which will provide a full suite of services to Financial Institutions and their UHNW clients.
When he is not advising clients or networking, John likes to spend time with his family and playing the occasional game of golf.
