A short history of ASW

Our story is one of resourcefulness and renewal, drawing on the perspective of the experience of our employees.

The virtue of ASW’s setup is the overlapping tenure of the managers and their collective management principles. It means the business does not suffer radical changes in direction: fresh ideas, yes, but evolution not revolution.

Sustainability is central to ASW’s way of thinking. In aiming to ensure the prosperity of our clients over the long term, we are instinctively predisposed towards the interests of future generations.

Established in 1988 in Hong Kong we have grown quickly and efficiently and now have sales and trading offices in New York, Edinburgh, Hong kong and are looking at expanding in to Singapore.

Always ready to adapt to changing circum­stances, the thrust of our strategy is towards con­tinuity, stability and sustainability to the enduring advantage of our clients.
