WMRC started operation in 2006. Formerly known as Wealth Management Resource Centre LLP, the company was incorporated as a private limited entity and renamed WMRC Private Ltd. in 2008.
WMRC’s Founder, John Koh started the firm from scratch with little prior experience in recruitment. With his keen attitude to design and improve on solutions to address a problem and need, John managed to grow WMRC from a specialist recruitment firm targeting the wealth management industry to one that caters to key pillars of the financial industry.
WMRC now works with clients and candidates in Private Banking, Corporate & Investment Banking, Asset Management and Insurance. The firm has its main operation in Singapore and a representative office in Hong Kong.
Drawing on his entrepreneurial spirit and constant desire to do things better, John is responsible for leading WMRC in its daily operation and strategic direction.
John was a banker with Deutsche Bank Private Wealth Management and MeesPierson Asia prior to starting WMRC and has worked and lived in Tokyo as a management consultant within the Strategic Change Group of PricewaterhouseCoopers Consulting (now known as IBM Consulting).
He holds an MSc in Wealth Management degree, jointly awarded by the Singapore Management University, Wealth Management Institute and the Swiss Finance Institute. He also holds an MBA from the University of Hawaii at Manoa, receiving the Fujitsu’s Asia Pacific Scholarship and graduating with top honours for outstanding leadership and entrepreneurial qualities.
