Asian hedge fund consulting firm GFIA has added a new wealth management service to its offerings.
The wealth management service is targeted at sophisticated pools of private wealth. It is designed to offer a holistic, client-specific service.
According to a statement from the firm, “GFIA’s advantage lies in its deep understanding of the investment and financial world, couple with its reputation as an ethical fiduciary.”
The firm will act as a fiduciary agent, working on clients’ behalf, from initial structuring, through cash management, portfolio investment (in both liquid and illiquid assets), deal/acquisition due diligence, and philanthropy, managing external service providers on behalf of clients, as necessary.
The new unit’s first client is a wealthy family, which will also take an equity stake in GFIA’s holding company. GFIA will establish and manage the family office.
