Wheaton Capital was established in Hong Kong in 1983 as G&D Wheaton Capital Management by brothers George & Douglas Wheaton. Over the years the firm has expanded from our initial focus on Hong Kong to be based throughout the Asia-Pacific region, although we have a truly global outlook and presence.

Following the retirement of George Wheaton in 1996 and the death of Douglas Wheaton in 1998, the firm gradually became owned by our staff and management. In 2005 we simplified our name to Wheaton Capital reflecting both our strong heritage under the Wheaton brothers as well as our future as a management owned and client focused investment services firm.
