Anton Casey’s former employer Crossinvest Asia has confirmed they have “parted ways” with the British wealth manager, following a week of uproar surrounding comments he made via social media about Singaporeans.
In a statement posted on the company’s Facebook page, the company announced Casey was no longer working with them.
“Crossinvest Asia is a family business which has been built here in Singapore. The online comments made by Mr. Casey do not represent the culture that we have built over many years,” the statement said. “Accordingly, Crossinvest Asia and Mr Casey have parted ways with immediate effect.”
Casey made headlines last week after he was caught making derogatory comments on Facebook against Singaporeans and commuters.
One of the posts made to his personal Facebook account included a photo featuring his five-year-old son sitting in an MRT train with the caption: “Daddy, where is your car & who are all these poor people?”
Another post shows him being reunited with his Porsche, with the caption: “Ahhhhhhh reunited with my baby. Normal service can resume, once I have washed the stench of public transport off me!”
His remarks drew flak from locals and garnered international media coverage. Despite making a public apology, Casey received death threats, and has since relocated with his family to Perth.
