eFront, a software provider of solutions for the alternative investment market, has opened a new office in the heart of Singapore’s financial and trade centre.
The new office, eFront’s third in Asia, will focus on addressing the private equity, real estate and infrastructure investment sectors. Complementing the teams operating out of Hong Kong and Beijing, the Singapore-based team of eFront consultants will provide local implementation service and support to eFront customers in South-East Asia.
With its mature financial infrastructure, Singapore is considered one of Asia’s foremost financial centres and is an important hub for foreign investments in growing Asian economies such as India, Indonesia, Vietnam and Malaysia. The alternative investments industry is a well-established sector in the local financial environment, making it an ideal location for a new eFront office in the larger South-East Asia region. Tarek Chouman, Managing Director, eFront Asia, will lead the new entity.
"eFront’s entry into Singapore is a game changer for companies with alternative investment operations in the broader Asia-Pacific region. To now have eFront’s experience available locally will benefit clients greatly," says Chouman. "South-East Asia has a great amount of potential and we look forward to developing new relationships in this region."
In addition to Singapore, eFront has offices in Beijing, Hong Kong, Dubai, New York, Montreal, London, Jersey, Paris and Bonn.
