Eight Wealth International (EWI), a principal partner practice of St James’s Place (SJP), has said that Simon Lints will join the firm as a strategic adviser based in Singapore, according to a media release.

Lints has three decades of experience in wealth management as well as a record of building and growing businesses in the international financial services sector across various geographies including Asia, Europe and Middle East.

Prior to joining EWI, Lints held senior roles in wealth management and private banking at Credit Suisse and UBS, and was most recently the CEO of Schroders Wealth Management Singapore where he looked after the Southeast Asia portfolio.

As part of Lints’ role with EWI, he will focus on driving the firm’s strategic expansion and business development in Asia. He will also work closely with the senior EWI management team in client advisory as well as identifying strategic opportunities for business acquisition and partnership.

“As Asia continues to grow as an attractive destination for investors, their appointments are testament to our growth aspirations and long-term commitment to meeting the needs of affluent and high net worth clients in the region,” said Ian Riggs, group CEO of EWI, in the statement.

Eight Wealth International are the international operations of Eight Wealth Management UK, a wealth management and accountancy business within the SJP group, set up several years ago by Ian Riggs.

Founded in the UK in 1991, SJP was listed on the London Stock Exchange in 1997. It bought the Henley Group, an Asia wealth management advice company in 2014, and has offices in Singapore, Hong Kong and China, as well as the UK.
