In response to continued growth in business opportunities across Asia Pacific over the last two years
Eagle Investment Systems, a provider of financial services technology and a wholly owned subsidiary of BNY Mellon Asset Servicing, has opened a new operational centre in Singapore. Reportedly, led by John Legrand, managing director of Eagle’s Asia Pacific and EMEA operations, Eagle’s Singapore office comprises a team of local, experienced professionals, who will support the development of new sales channels across the region and work with a growing list of prospects, manage existing client relationships and assist with client implementations.
Danny Lim will head sales efforts for the region. He has 12 years’ experience in the Asian financial services industry and was most recently a sales manager with Thomson Reuters covering the Southeast Asia region. William Tan will be responsible for implementation consultancy and sales support. His experience extends over 20 years, with relevant financial experience for the last 14 years. He joins Eagle from Thomson Reuters, where he was a senior consultant.
Eagle has also recruited two other expert professionals who will commence work during the fourth quarter of this year. One will handle client consulting and implementations, while the other will manage all local client relationships.
Mr. Legrand said: “Our clients’ businesses are becoming increasingly sophisticated and complex. This has led to rapid changes in their technology requirements. They need better visibility into their data, greater accuracy and automation of investment accounting, as well as the ability to measure in much finer detail the performance of their investments. Eagle can provide the solutions they need. Establishing a permanent presence and providing on-the-ground support in Asia is therefore the right next step for us.”
John Lehner, president of Eagle Investment Systems, said: “Growth markets across Asia, including China, are critical to the future of Eagle, and we are committing the resources, people and capital needed to pursue the significant opportunities in the region. Singapore with its strategic location and highly business-friendly environment, is an ideal base from which to develop our Asia business. With this new Asian operating centre, we have taken a critical step to increase our presence and franchise in Asia to better service our expanding client base.
