Managing Partners & Shareholders



ACH was founded in response to the 1997 Asian financial crisis in the belief that in times of crisis, new ideas are needed, new solutions demanded, and new relationships forged. This equally applies today with the challenging demands and opportunities brought about by globalization and intensifying competition.

ACH’s shareholders/partners are all well established and known financial professionals, who have held senior management positions with top-drawer
international financial institutions; together they bring a wealth of skills and depth of knowledge and experience from a broad range of disciplines including
finance banking, accounting, and corporate restructuring.

From our head office in Singapore, where we are registered with and regulated by the Monetary Authority of Singapore, ACH acts as a corporate and financial advisor to both corporates and leading Asian families.

Our partners bring together proven track records of over 80 years of combined financial experience almost entirely focused on Asia, Australasia, and the Indian subcontinent.
