The Fry Group, a global financial advisory firm specialising in working with British expats around the world, today announces that Stuart McCulloch will join as market head, Middle East to lead business expansion in the region.
McCulloch has 27 years’ experience in regulated financial services in the UK and the Middle East. He will be tasked with growing the business in this key market for The Fry Group, while leveraging his network and experience of working in various jurisdictions.
Before joining The Fry Group, McCulloch was head of operations at the Bank of Singapore in Dubai, and before that, head of operations, Middle East at Coutts. Both roles gave him significant experience of setting up and running businesses in the region that will be crucial for building out The Fry Group’s footprint in this important market.
Before moving to Dubai, McCullogh worked for Standard Life, Halifax Financial Services and Prudential in the UK, gaining significant knowledge and experience in financial products and services to advise clients on their tax, wealth and estate planning.
McCulloch said: “I am excited to join The Fry Group to drive its growth strategy in the Middle East. The region offers a significant opportunity for providers of quality financial advice like The Fry Group to bring high standards of advice where this is often lacking, coupled with a transparent model, and access to market-leading products.”
Jeremy Woodley, chairman and managing director, said: “A key part of our strategy is to expand into new geographies, and Stuart’s track record and experience make him ideally suited to lead our efforts in Dubai and the Middle East. We’re thrilled to have him join the business as we continue to build on our position as the leading provider of financial advice to British expats.”
