Our Journey

Trust was a core value from the early days of our business, resulting in the long-term relationships that have become the foundation of The Austen Morris Associates Group of Companies today.

Greg Morris and co-founder Austen Hempstead founded Austen Morris Associates in Dubai in 1994.
By 1999 China was ready for professional services and Greg moved the team to open its first mainland office as a legitimate WFOE: Wholly Foreign-Owned Enterprise in 2003.
In July 2013, the Austen Morris Associates Africa office was opened in South Africa, a highly regulated market which moved Austen Morris Associates into new opportunities.
In 2016 launch of AMA’s Consultant Equity Release Program, CERP.
In 2020 the Covid-19 pandemic sped up the plans to innovate how we engaged with our clients with the launch of a refreshed website and mobile App.
The AMA Group of Companies celebrates 29 years of referral based growth.
The company expanded its headquarters to the more stable and regulated Singapore in 1997.
By 2008 there were offices in Beijing, Suzhou, Shanghai, Philippines, Thailand, Vietnam and Indonesia. We became one of the most service oriented Financial Service Companies in Asia with thousands of clients investing from over 50 countries worldwide.
In 2014 rebranding of AMA to represent the future vision which coincided with our 20 Year Anniversary
AMA Philippines gained additional licensing to register as an Insurance Agent within the Philippines to further expand AMA’s Personal and Corporate Healthcare Client options.
