Originally from the UK, Darren has been in the financial services industry for 25 years, starting his career with various roles within a life assurance company, then small independent financial adviser firms, before spending the 10 years prior to coming to Malaysia in 2016, working in The City of London for a reputable private bank and a wealth manager.
Darren is qualified under the globally recognised Chartered Insurance Institute of the UK (Cert CII Dip PFS) which includes specialist qualifications in taxation and pensions. This enabled him to be a designated Pensions Specialist for the firms in London, a role requiring an eye for detail.
The London roles gave Darren fundamental knowledge in dealing with individuals subject to UK tax and also to foreign clients/non-UK domiciles who were subject to UK tax or planning to leave the UK. Now he is on the other side of the ‘water’, this grounding helps him research and provide sound and thorough advice for all expat circumstances. Add to this integrity and higher UK regulatory standards, clients can be assured they are in good hands.
Outside of finance, Darren is a massive football fan but over-riding that he is a big sports fan and will generally watch just about anything! Having played football to senior county level has played tennis, badminton and water polo and a few years before leaving London, took up boxing to keep fit.
