Giles Henman

Giles Henman, Partner, St. James’s Place Wealth Management,
is standing for the position of At-Large

I have built a successful business in China by focusing on building and maintaining long-term relationships with my clients and the wider Shanghai British community. I have lived in the Pudong area of Shanghai with my wife Jill and two teenage sons, Tommy and Harvey since 2012.

Both St. James’s Place as a company and I as an individual, are very active members of the British Chamber. We were Centenary sponsors in 2015, became a Sustaining Member in 2016 and were Annual Ball sponsors in 2017. On a personal front, I have been asked to speak at several Chamber seminars, ensuring fellow members are informed of financial and economic issues that may affect them whilst living abroad.

If elected I would like to use the experience that I have acquired doing business in both the UK & China to support our members with the challenges they face, connect likeminded people within the community in Shanghai and more importantly, I am excited by the opportunity to help broaden the member events programme and help grow the BritCham membership for the benefit of all.
