Lighthouse Canton

Best Independent Wealth Manager – Asia Pacific

Shilpi Chowdhary

group CEO

This has been a proud moment for our entire team. We would like to thank clients for their continuous support; without them, we would not be where we are today.

Entrepreneurship and excellence are two essential pillars upon which our team has built its determination to offer innovative investment solutions, and its ambition to keep improving across the organisation, while setting high business standards for ourselves.

In 2022, the financial markets witnessed strong headwinds because of inflation, rising interest rates, and increased market volatility caused by various events. However, our team demonstrated persistence in its efforts to provide strategic investment solutions to clients. Our investment ethos and portfolio design process have allowed us to generate high alpha compared to global benchmarks, while minimising risk to capital.

The award for Best Independent Wealth Manager – Asia Pacific is a testament to our endeavour to become market leaders in people excellence, digital agility, and investment acumen. And we are determined to redouble our efforts to uphold this position as the leading independent wealth manager in the Asia Pacific.
