About John

15 years ago John embarked upon a new career in the world of financial services. He wasn’t completely new to finance having been Managing Director of Saatchi & Saatchi Advertising in Singapore in his late 20’s where he was responsible for P&L as part of his remit. Over the subsequent years he successfully ran his own businesses in the UK.

He then went on to become an advisor in the offshore financial services arena. After a short period of time, he rose to the top of his field in Kuala Lumpur and 3 years later moved to Vietnam where he has been for the last 12 years working in management roles and advising clients. John helps clients big and small achieve their short, medium and long-term financial goals.

Born in Melbourne, Australia, John holds dual Australian & British citizenship. He lives in Ho Chi Minh with his Vietnamese wife & teenage son. His two grown up children work in London as a lawyer and fashion buyer.
