There have been a series of partners leave HFW Sing in recent years, both to competitors and to retirement. Their bench strength was somewhat depleted. This could be the start of a revival ! Reply Link John Grimley 11 April 2014 at 00:56 I suspect this will be the beginning of a trend as the Asia-Pacific market continues it’s double digit growth. Reply Link Anonymous 11 April 2014 at 01:42 As a competitor based on the region I think this is an interesting move. If this is indicative of a renewed focus on Asia then it is to be commended. If this is an attempt to shore up the local marine offering then that will be challenging as partners who are parachuted in have not generally made an impact over here. Client support takes time to build up and is a lot more personal than is the case in London.
