John Robertson
Wealth Manager

John was originally born and educated in the UK, living and working in London but also lived in Hong Kong and Australia before moving to Malaysia in 2008. In Kuala Lumpur he commenced his role with The Synergy Partnership, a company which distributes alternative investment funds to wealth managers and financial institutions globally. As Regional Manager for South East Asia John marketed a diverse range of investment funds catered to accredited investors, including among others Trend Following CTA’s (Commodity Trading Advisers), Fund of Hedge Funds & Distressed real estate to financial advisers across the region.

John then moved and set up an office in Singapore where he was based for four years and where he undertook the relevant certification for an advisory licence with the Singapore College of Insurance. The fund distribution role provided John with a broad and in-depth understanding of the way financial advisory and wealth management firms operated across the region and while there were those that perform their duties admirably, John felt that many were lacking in transparency and often selling products to clients that were often unsuitable for their requirements. John joined Farringdon Group as he felt the company offered him the freedom to conduct business in a professional, but more importantly open and ethical manner with full transparency on fees and charging structures.

John prides himself on his integrity, approachability and openness when meeting potential clients and believes complete transparency is a necessity for any business relationship to develop successfully.
