We are very conscious that expats are often unfamiliar with the Singapore environment and that they are not protected by the same regulation that they are familiar with in the UK, says David Pugh, director of The Fry Group (Singapore).
David Pugh has been living and working in Asia for over eight years and is responsible for The Fry Group’s activities in the region. He is designated chief executive officer and chief risk officer. He has over 19 years-industry experience and currently manages a portfolio of 50 private clients.
He holds the internationally recognised Cisi Advanced Financial Planning Certificate, the CFA Society Investment Management Certificate (the most widely recognised qualification of its kind in the UK) and is a chartered member of the Chartered Institute for Securities and Investment.
He specialises in working with clients to design individual, bespoke financial planning strategies aligned to their personal goals and aspirations.
Prior to his move to Asia, he was employed by Hargreaves Lansdown as a financial practitioner responsible for central London.
He is an active board member of the British Chamber of Commerce Singapore and in 2011, won the prestigious Young Professional of the Year award at the annual British Chamber of Commerce Business Awards.
