Remarkable Growth Momentum
As per the source, Lioner has experienced tremendous growth since its launch in 2021, with revenues having grown an estimated 63% in the first half of this year. Its rapid growth is the result of successful partnerships with leading private banks and asset management firms, which see Lioner as a trusted partner offering comprehensive services in the region. Furthermore, the company has doubled its headcount in the first six months of 2022 to keep up with its accelerated business growth. As a licensed financial adviser in Singapore, Lioner’s expansion will bring its growth to the next level, boosting its client base and enhancing its service offerings.
