Welcome to Old Asia Hands

“The Old Asia Hands Society is a US based, informal international social group of various nationalities, historically bankers, retired and otherwise, who either currently reside, or have resided in Asia, or had significant business experience with, and within the region. It is an organization of men and women who retain an abiding interest in the political, economic and cultural affairs of the countries that define greater Asia.

Our mission is to provide a virtual clubhouse to facilitate a forum for communication among individuals, primarily from within the broadly defined world of finance, who want to stay in touch, and which contact is supplemented with physical gatherings that facilitate and enhance further interaction among members.”
