In 2006, following the demerger of Sovereign, Richard Chandler established the Clermont Group, with its headquarters in Singapore.
The Clermont Group is passionate about building businesses that contribute to the prosperity and well-being of the communities in which they operate. Our mission is to build iconic companies that lead industry and shape culture through wisdom in governance, business innovation and marketplace trust. We believe in principles before profits; our moral and reputational capital underwrite our long-term success.
Clermont’s conglomerate business model comprises two divisions. The first is Clermont Holdings, which owns and operates a group of businesses in healthcare, financial services and aerospace. Here, talented individuals – rigorously trained in the art and science of business-building – steward our Operating Businesses through excellence, innovation and integrity.
The second division, Clermont Capital, invests in private and public securities. It plays an important role in managing the group’s reserves and liquidity.
Our strong and resilient business model combines both business and investment principles, with each team drawing on the skills, capabilities, relational networks, and market and industry insights of the other. While it is easy for a conglomerate to fall into confusion in a search for growth and diversification, we are careful to guard our identity and focus on a few businesses where we believe we can lead. Fulfilling our purpose - building a better world - is a call to creativity, innovation and risk taking. In so doing we are creating epic stories of marketplace adventures that make our professional careers exciting, rewarding and meaningful.
