Gary Harvey, chief executive of St James’s Place Singapore, will leave the business later in the year, SJP said in a statement.

He will go after “the conclusion of a number of projects and handover” to focus on “other opportunities”, the firm added.

Harvey has led the Singapore business over the past five years and during the move to a capital markets (CMS) licence holder.

SJP said: “He led the Singapore business successfully through the covid pandemic driving growth and the adoption of technology, with the business emerging stronger after this challenging period. We wish Gary great success in the next stage of his career.”

Harvey joined the firm in 2018 from Nexus Financial Services, where he was chief executive.

SJP did not state who will take over the role or if the firm is actively searching for a replacement.
