About Independent Wealth Managers

Independent Wealth Managers, also known as External Asset Managers or Independent Asset Managers are nonbank wealth managers regulated by the MAS, and they range from independent management firms to family offices and individual advisers.

Concentrating on private investors and high net worth individuals, independent wealth managers offer a flexible, holistic, and strategic approach to wealth management. With a focus on client centricity, independent wealth managers provide bespoke investment advice and solutions that are tailor-made to clients’ individual needs in this fast-changing market environment.

As the number of independent wealth managers continues to grow in Singapore and across Asia, they are increasingly recognised as valued players in Singapore’s financial ecosystem.
