Q2 Update

5 April 2012

Hi All – I wanted to take this opportunity to update you with a second quarter update.  I have to say since the start of Q2 its been a steady incline, heading in a very positive direction.

So what have we been up to:

– Established a base in Shenzhen, China

– Representation in Vietnam

– Published more product information on our news feed (we’ve had comments in the past stating we don’t provide product information, well its all on our news feed now).

– Enhanced reporting on our Market Analysis (You will hopefully start to see a change from today)

And phase 2 of our Win £50,000 pension campaign – and this is the talking point for today’s blog.

So there you have it, thats just to name but a few.  I would have liked to mention all our recent successes but due to the sensitive nature I can’t as of yet – sorry!

A bit of background information regarding our Win £50,000 campaign.  In a nutshell and according to my simple understanding if you have a UK pension and want to transfer it to a Cornhill FlexMax offshore pension scheme you will get automatically entered into a draw with a 1 in 200 chance of winning £50,000 to spend on anything you like!

Phase 1 of this campaign was an email marketing shot, and phase 2 consists of ‘Welcome to South East Asia’ post cards (see image below).

Now we’ve done a lot of groundwork in carefully selecting the correct image that best portrays Broadgate and the campaign.  The picture is of Angkor Wat Cambodia with a reflection of Big Ben and the Houses of Parliament in London – clever?

So why not ‘Welcome to Thailand’?

Angkor was chosen as its a wonder of the world – a timeless site and its a testament to our ongoing expansion projects in Cambodia.  And ‘Welcome to South East Asia’ because thats Broadgate’s vision – to be ‘The Leading Boutique Private Bank in South East Asia’.

Local expertise with a global outreach.

And finally – tomorrow (Friday 6th April) is a public holiday here in Thailand – Yes thats right another public holiday and no, its not an excuse to increase GDP.

Tomorrow is Chakri Day to commemorate the contribution of the kings of Chakri dynasty, who have been ruling Thailand since 1782. The day is a medium for the faithful people of Thailand to express their love and reverence to the mighty kings.
