He has worked extensively with asset managers, banks, insurers, technology providers and ground-breaking fintech start-ups across the region and has been active in promoting greater understanding of how fintech is disrupting the financial services sector.

WATATAWA’s Managing Partner Simon Pangrazio commented: “Our aim is to provide our clients with bespoke solutions in responding to rapid changes in their business operating environments and the evolving stakeholder landscape. Tim is a terrific addition to the team, with his experience in advising global financial services providers and emerging fintechs, and a natural fit for our strategic offering.”

Williamson added: “I have been a huge admirer of WATATAWA for some time. They combine strong strategic communications counsel, a senior team and outstanding execution. Asia is at the forefront of transformation in the financial services sector and WATATAWA is well placed to help financial services firms grow in the region and assist Asian financial services companies in projecting onto the world stage.”
