Old Mutual International, part of financial services company Quilter, has added Claire Tan and Christabel Fernandez as directors of high net worth solutions for their sales team in Singapore and South East Asia.

Tan joins from the private banking sector as a portfolio counsellor and prior to this, relationship manager – with roles including multi-family office and asset management functions in the independent wealth sector. Her experience includes working with wealth planners to deliver solutions to high net worth clients across South East Asia.

Fernandez was previously an institutional broker specialising in the ultra-high net worth insurance space providing advice and solutions to private bankers and their clients. Her experience includes relationship management covering the high net worth South East Asia segment at multinational banks.

Both Tan and Fernandez will look to extend Old Mutual International’s distribution partnerships and strengthen existing key relationships in the region.

Old Mutual Singapore CEO Ian Kloss said: “Both Claire and Bella come to us with a wealth of experience which will help us continue to grow our market share in the Singapore high net worth client sector. The increase in head count as well as the industry connections they bring will allow broader coverage and support our service proposition. I look forward to warmly welcoming them to the team.”

Tan said: “I am thrilled to join Old Mutual International. The company has an excellent reputation in the Singapore and I am really looking forward to being able to continue to drive its high net worth business.”

Fernandez said: “This is an exciting time for Old Mutual International in Asia. The high net worth sector in the region is growing rapidly and I want to continue to holistically value-add to our partners and clients alike.”

Intrinsic, the advice unit of Quilter, was renamed Quilter Financial Planning in July 2019.

The move follows parent Quilter’s managed separation from Old Mutual.

The Caerus network brand has also been replaced as part of the move.

Currently, the rebranded business’ adviser headcount is over 3,900.
