Fundrock opens Singapore office

Friday, May 17, 2019
Opalesque Industry Update - FundRock has opened a new branch in Singapore headed by Timothy Walkley, Managing Director - Asia Markets.

Tim has been involved in the investment management industry for over 20 years with a significant experience in Asian markets. He has been actively involved in China-focussed investment activities since 1999 covering both private and public equities. Most recently, he launched a China A share ETF in partnership with FundRock for a large Chinese investment manager.

Xavier Parain, Group CEO of FundRock said: "The establishment of a FundRock branch in Singapore is part of our strategy to expand our business in the Asia Pacific region and complements the cooperation agreement we signed in September with Perpetual Corporate Trust of Australia. Our clients are always in the centre of what we do and Tim's significant experience of dealing with Asian based managers will allow us to broaden the solutions we can offer them in the region".

Tim Walkley commented: "As the leading third-party Management Company in Europe, FundRock has a long track record of offering solutions to Asia based managers and understanding the specific challenges they face. Following a significant increase in the number of Asian investment managers setting up funds in Europe, the establishment of a branch in Singapore allows us to better serve our existing clients and expand our client base".
