"James came highly recommended to me by a friend who had been using his financial services for years. I needed a financial advisor who could respond to my financial position in a unique way. It wasn’t just about looking at planning and policy advice but about understanding my personal financial journey and appealing to that .


I’m a self supporting ,single parent and my financial journey has been rocky and difficult and I didn’t need someone to simply throw regulation at me . James always seems to always have the time, really listens to your concerns, and due to his broad spectrum skills, coaches you through the mindset struggles and practical hurdles.


I found his approach supportive while also being grounded in years of experience in the finance world. He is very knowledgeable about supporting expatriates to transition back to their country of domicile a service that is extremely helpful. Thank you James"

I have known James for over two decades and value his knowledge and advice when I am reviewing my financial situation and my plans for retirement. His guidance has made it easier to meet many of my financial targets. Having spent a third of my life in Singapore it is easy to just become reliant on information and products based in Singapore, so having someone to discuss this with and to help me plan for my retirement, wherever it maybe, has helped me enormously. James' advice has led me to realise that however great a place Singapore may be, it is important to diversify your assets and investments and I am now acting upon it.

Been working with James Hartland at AstraAsia Group for years. If you happened to be an expat looking for someone who could understand your cross-border needs, you can rely on James especially for global planning related to your pension, insurance, investment, medical coverage.


Also, if you happened to be going through changes in your life like marriage, divorce or any major life events; James knows what you are going through, or he would have known someone that could help you.


James is definitely the source for your expat needs because he is very well versed with the offshore environment as he travels constantly around the globe for continuous expansion as well as relationship building with professionals. Surprisingly, being so in depth with knowledge, he is humble in nature and is easy to talk to. I recommend you schedule a time with him and find out more for yourself.
