ST HELIER, Jersey, August 2, 2011 /PRNewswire/ --
Vistra Jersey today announced the appointment of Victor Ho to the role of Director - Private Clients. Victor has over 20 years' experience in the financial services industry, specialising in wealth management and estate planning for Chinese corporate and high net worth individuals. His appointment reflects Vistra's commitment to business in Asia: in particular Victor will be responsible for leveraging business from the recent merger with Offshore Incorporations Limited, the Asia-based wholesaler and administrator of offshore companies. In addition, Victor will specialise in working with Chinese communities both in London and Europe to structure their assets where appropriate. He will also focus on supporting clients from Asia who require structuring for cross border capital flows from Asia into Europe, where European-time zone administration is preferred.
Victor was born in Hong Kong and graduated with an honours degree in Accounting, Finance and Economics from the University of Essex in 1991. He trained with KPMG Jersey office and qualified as a Chartered Accountant in 1995. Prior to joining Vistra, Victor was a director in a specialist trust company in Jersey, where he was responsible for business development in the Hong Kong and Chinese markets, having built up an extensive network of intermediary contacts there.
Commenting on his appointment, Victor said, "The Asian market continues to offer enormous potential for growth. Vistra is perfectly placed to take advantage on the basis of their local representation in Asia, and the worldwide network of offices in 18 jurisdictions. I am looking forward to being able to grow this business both from our European and Asian bases."
Chris Burton, Vistra Jersey's CEO and Managing Director, said: "With over 20 years' experience and a proven track record, Victor brings a key set of skills and experience which will play a vital part in our drive to grow our Asian client base."
Victor is fluent in English Cantonese and Mandarin.
