​AP Executive, the global recruitment specialists in wealth management, trust, fiduciary and family office, have opened an office in Singapore to service its blue chip clients in Asia.

The new regional base enables AP Executive to enhance the level of services provided to clients in Singapore, Asia and internationally. Already well established in London, Guernsey, Jersey, Switzerland and Cyprus, AP Executive is the recruitment partner of choice for firms looking to hire talent and to professionals seeking a new career.  AP Executive services clients and mid management to executive board level candidates in more than 55 jurisdictions globally. 

Heading up the new Asia office is Clarence Lai who is a Singaporean national. He brings with him a proven history in successful management experience within the Singapore market place.  AP Executive CEO, Gina Le Prevost says:

“Clarence has the drive, loyalty and commitment to succeed.   I am delighted to be closely working with Clarence so we can continue to build AP Executive’s global reputation and recruitment reach - to ensure our valued clients continue to work with AP Executive as their first and only choice in securing the right professionals for their global businesses.  Clarence will also be further developing our portfolio of clients and candidates within Asia”.

Clarence says: “Wealth management recruitment is an exciting industry to be involved in and I am delighted to have joined AP Executive and be responsible in the company’s development into Asia and to be able to build the brand name even further.  This is an exciting career phase for me’.

Singapore by far is the most popular city to work in Asia and on a global scale stands close to London and New York. Furthermore, the attractive tax system, economic stability and favourable policies, high-class infrastructure as well as location places Singapore at the forefront of business in Asia. In essence Singapore is an attractive place for businesses because it has all the financial benefits of an offshore location with all the infrastructure and support that major on-shore financial centres like London and Wall Street can offer. The setting makes this one of the premier jurisdictions for wealth management, family office, trust and other financial services sectors. 

AP Executive was developed in the 90’s in Guernsey as an offshoot division of AP Group and has since grown to become the largest division of AP Group.  The Channel Islands are known as one of the world’s key financial centres particularly for trust and fiduciary and so it was a natural progression to develop AP Executives recruitment expertise of this industry into other regions.  ‘The trust, fiduciary, family office and wealth management industry, has given us a leading edge when expanding globally, enabling AP Executive to exceed expectations internationally.  We have developed internationally over the years as our clients have done.’ says Gina.   

With the Asian market place expanding broadly into the world’s financial and economic markets, AP Executives new office in Singapore comes at a more compelling time for companies looking to expand and grow. We have been placing professional candidates on an international level for more than 24 years, and have helped many individuals with the opportunity to broaden their expertise and to live and work in new and interesting locations. We have also assisted many clients to expand their operations and find them the key staff in the locations they have opened in.  We believe that our new operation in Asia is providing the idealistic opportunity for further growth for our clients and for our candidates.
