With a strong vision that the interest of the clients will be optimal in an environment of an "open architecture", identifying and looking for the best solutions possible without the restrictions of proprietary products or transactional income. Cliff's entrepreneurial and open spirit to develop the best model in the industry is exciting and expanding. The fee-based model is the system of now and the future, the only way of creating aligned interest between the fund manager and the client(s). Still infant in Asia and very much developed in the established wealth management areas like the USA and Europe, it will be a matter of time to see this model grow exponentially.
