Aquila Capital is opening of a new office in Singapore. The office, which is the firm’s first in Asia, will function as a centre point for Aquila for Asian markets with a view to strengthen further Aquila’s presence throughout the region.
Aquila’s operations out of Singapore will be led by Chum Yong Quah, Director Wholesale. Prior to joining Aquila, Chum worked for Fidelity as Head of Private Banking & South East Asia Development for two years, where he was responsible for sales and client servicing operations in Singapore, Thailand, Malaysia, the Philippines, Brunei and Indonesia. He previously held similar positions at DBS Asset Management, American Express Bank and Standard Chartered.
Roman Rosslenbroich, CEO and founder of Aquila Capital, says: “Singapore is an extremely attractive location for Aquila due to its strong infrastructure, high affinity with alternative investments and strong existing demand for absolute return UCITS funds.”
