Dumith Fernando, Chairman of Asia Securities remarked, “In Avancka we have an outstanding partner to drive the addition of cross-asset class Wealth Management solutions to our client offering.

Mr. Herat said “I am excited to join the Asia Securities team to establish the Wealth Management business. The company has had the right focus on integrity, quality of advice and trusted relationships, backed by the most internationally-experienced team in the business. This will help us develop a unique client offering.”  He emphasized that “Independence and fiduciary responsibility to clients will be a mainstay of our business model.  We will exercise high compliance standards which will separate the business from other affiliate business-lines, and on the principle of ‘open-architecture’ - working closely with several carefully selected financial product providers.”
