Raffles Family Office Expands China Growth 

The multi-family office, which operates from a number of cities in Asia, has expanded its coverage of the Greater China market.

Raffles Family Office has appointed former Deutsche Bank senior figure Kevin King as managing director, head of greater China. 

King has almost 20 years’ experience working with Chinese business founders. King was market head for China at Deutsche Bank International Private Bank. Previously, he was head of wealth management, China Market at BNP Paribas. He also spent 10 years with Citi Private Bank before joining BNP. He will report to Chi-man Kwan, group CEO and RFO’s founder, and be based in Hong Kong. 

“With a demonstrated history of delivering exceptional financial solutions and fostering strong client relationships, Kevin’s expertise aligns seamlessly with our commitment to providing tailored and strategic financial services. We are confident that his insights will be invaluable,” Kwan said.

King said: “The vital role family offices play in mainland China, both as investment vehicles and investors, is resonating with undeniable influence. As a result of the nationwide emergence of a burgeoning number of ultra-high net worth families, these entities have the capacity to shape not only the legacy of the families but also exert a substantial impact on the broader economy.”

King graduated with a bachelor of business administration in accounting and finance (first class honours) from The Hong Kong University of Science and Technology in 2002.

In other appointments, Raffles Family Office recently named Zann Kwan as chief investment officer and managing partner of Revo Digital Family Office. It also appointed Rizal Wijono as a member of the Independent Advisory Board. The firm, which is based in Hong Kong, has branch offices in centres including Singapore, Shanghai, Beijing and Taipei.
