Welcoming Freda Lim, Counsel to our Wealth Management Practice

Vivien Teu & Co LLP is pleased to announce and welcome Freda Lim, who has joined as Counsel to our financial services group.  Freda will play a key role in the firm’s wealth management and trusts practice, and she shall also continue her focus in succession planning and probate matters for private clients.  Freda has most recently been Special Counsel with the Hong Kong office of UK firm Withers, and brings with her more than 10 years of dedicated private clients practice experience.

The addition of Freda Lim reflects growing client needs on specialist trust and succession planning matters, and is highly synergistic with our existing strength in investment funds and financial regulatory practice of our asset management group.   Freda will no doubt add to our depth and breadth in expertise to provide legal advice and support on financial services, investments and wealth planning matters.  We look forward to providing solid service and working alongside our clients and contacts who are wealth managers, trust service providers, private banks and family offices in this common space.

We would also like to take this opportunity to share our observations on the growth of family offices in Asia as an increasingly important constituent in private wealth management.

With increasing wealth levels in Asia, more family offices are in recent years set up in the region.  This has already been a global trend – in a recent front-page article of The Wall Street Journal, family office was referred to as the new force on Wall Street (“New Force on Wall Street: The ”Family Office”, 9 March 2017).

We examine the key elements of the functions and services for family offices, and outline some key legal aspects as well as relevant regulatory considerations for establishing family offices or structures, or when family office professionals offer related services, in this special publication:

Private Wealth Management & Family Offices

“New regulation redefining HNW investors to hit private banks…”

Vivien Teu & Co spoke to Asian Private Banker on the new regulatory development effective 25 March 2016, which impacts sale and distribution of financial products to professional investors who are high-net-worth individuals or their corporate or trust vehicles.   (See our client update which details the regulatory change.)

We were quoted as follows:

  • Private banks in Hong Kong face stricter and tighter due diligence requirements as the city’s Securities and Futures Commission (SFC) introduces a new regime, on how licensed and registered persons deal with professional investors.
  • The changes will affect intermediaries with reared to high net worths individuals, also small-and-medium enterprises with investible portfolio or assets of US$8 million and US$40 million respectively.
  • Previously professional investors that are not institutional investors, such as high net worths individuals,s trust corporations and corporate professional investors could be exempted from suitability processes, but now will have to undergo the same question-and-answer procedures as any other retail customer for assessing investment experience and situation to gauge suitability.
  • The new requirements will impact the distribution of products at private banks, with the exception of sophisticated high-net-worth clients who invest under a corporate structure and satisfy an assessment of investment knowledge, experience of the investment decision market and decision-making process, which may include family offices.
