Singapore-based multi-family office Golden Equator Wealth (GEW) announced two new senior hires for its team as part of its expansion plan. Rainer Michael Preiss joins as portfolio strategist, while Ritu Khera joins as wealth manager.
In his role as portfolio strategist, Preiss will be working closely with GEW’s wealth managers on current client portfolios and new prospects. He brings close to 25 years of investment advisory experience across the Middle East and financial hubs in Asia, including Singapore, Hong Kong, Seoul and Beijing. His most recent position was with The Global CIO Office in Singapore.
Khera, on the other hand, joins GEW as wealth manager and will focus on client relationships and acquisition. She has close to 20 years of experience in the wealth management industry and has worked in major private banks in India, the UK, Hong Kong and Singapore. She has built a strong reputation for supporting ultra-high net worth Non-Resident Indian clients and for facilitating bespoke deals for her clients. Her most recent position was with BNP Paribas Wealth Management.
GEW’s managing partner Gary Tiernan said, “Our intention to expand our multi-family office business is clear, and this includes the addition of more capabilities in client-facing and investment roles. Ritu and Michael share our belief in the need to support client families across generations and in our entrepreneurial nature that seeks to provide solutions for clients. I am excited to have these two stellar professionals join our growing team of experienced family office managers.”
“We continue to develop our client relationships across Asia, but we are also looking further afield. We have been engaging in conversations with families from Australia, the Middle East and Europe, who are looking to set up a personalised family office in Asia within our multi-family office community. This expansion will see us add more high-quality professionals to our team,” Tiernan added.
