Our milestones

  1. The very beginning

    From a corner of a shared office in Times Square, founder Andrew Burgin is given an opportunity to use his skills to help a friend—and a-pass’s first client—to set up a Hong Kong office. This marks the beginning of A-PASS — and that client is still a client today.
  2. The team grows

    A-PASS acquires the business of Swaffield & Co. and its four-strong team. Now double the size and in a new office in W Square, A-PASS amps up its operation.
  3. Getting our license

    The Hong Kong government introduces the Anti-Money Laundering and Counter-Terrorist Financing Ordinance and a licensing regime for Trust or Company Service Providers. A-PASS obtains its license and fulfils its due diligence with the Companies Registry.
  4. Welcoming Capricorn Capital

    To deliver even more value to clients, Capricorn Capital becomes A-PASS' major shareholder. Systems are upgraded, capabilities are broadened, our network is expanded, and Robin Harris and Carolyn Lui join the ranks of senior management.
  5. Capricorn Capital makes its second APAC acquisition

    Capricorn acquires Ethos (Hong Kong) Limited further demonstrating the firm's long-term commitment to corporate services in the region.
