Financial Planning services are as plentiful as blades of grass in a park, and in certain regions with fewer regulations like Hong Kong can subject clients to exploitation and abuse. Many financial advisers come from a background in sales, and so you can never be quite certain if the service they provide is dedicated to your future wellbeing or theirs.
So what makes Phoenix Waters Wealth Management different, and how can you be assured to place your trust in us? Read on to find out.
Phoenix Waters Wealth Management was formed in Hong Kong based on an idea – that the financial services industry has been corrupted by a hard sales culture and a significant number of advisers lack both the integrity and an understanding of the markets to be able to be impartial or impactful in helping clients achieve their goals. Poor advice was given. Strategies were executed which could never fulfil their objectives. Accountability was lost. And a dependence on commission incentivised many advisors to jettison their moral fibre in favour of luxurious perks at the expense of their clients.
Change was needed. We are that change.
Founded by Bizhan Tong, Phoenix Waters Wealth Management was created to address the shortcomings in the sector by someone who led a successful career in it over several years. With an MBA, a Maths degree, and a career spanning various areas of the wealth management business including relationship management, fund management, and client experience strategy, Bizhan’s journey exploring all facets of wealth management through a multi-national organization provided the clarity to understand what changes need to be made and how to make them. In addition his MBA dissertation which focused on Ethics and his engagement in the philanthropic space has distilled clear guidelines to ensure Phoenix Waters Wealth Management is ethically sound and morally grounded so that clients receive advice that is wholly beneficial to them.
Yet his background expands further than wealth management and having run a successful start-up, an award-winning production company, a tech platform, and led various initiatives in the tech and social space, Bizhan knows the challenges of hard-won success and an innate understanding of many of the industries our clients operate in.
Leaving London for Hong Kong, and forming a partnership with St. James’s Place, a UK FTSE 100 company, Phoenix Waters Wealth Management was born to create a truly client-centric experience with high level advice and expertise that distinguishes us from all others.

- Expertise – Phoenix Waters Wealth Management was founded by a figure who achieved the highest client advocacy score nationally while acting as a relationship manager in Barclays Premier, helped form an award-winning social impact fund at Barclays Wealth, and designed and developed a multi-award-winning client experience strategy for Barclays Private Bank. Your wealth manager comes from a background in finance and analysis, not sales, and has the track record to reflect the expertise you deserve.
