Today, Sophis announced that it has extended its representative office into a full-service office in Hong Kong and made new appointments, continuing its rapid expansion in the Asia-Pacific.
The Hong Kong office is now re-located on the 58th floor of the IFC2 tower in Central Hong Kong. Together with the existing Tokyo office, the expanded Hong Kong office will act as the regional head office providing services to Sophis local clients including Bank of China International, Bank of East Asia, HSBC, Fortis, Descartes Investment Management, Barclays Capital, Calyon, WestLB, ING, etc… as well as supporting all up-coming business activities throughout the Asia-Pacific, with a strong focus on the Great China region.
Originally based in Sophis' London office, Corinne Grillet, in her new role as Asia-Pacific Professional Services Managing Director, is now responsible for overseeing the day-to-day local service operation with a strong team holding all the relevant skill sets in functional and IT areas.
"As a key player in the derivatives market, Sophis has experienced a stellar growth of activity in the Asia-Pacific, particularly in the Great China region, as the recent regulatory changes have boosted the demand for cross-asset derivatives risk management and processing solutions. The on-going expansion of our Hong Kong office will remain a high priority, and we are keen to continuously employ and retain the best skills to serve and assist our local customers in the capital market business. With over six years of experience working for key client projects in our European offices, Corinne has an acute understanding of Sophis’ marketplace. She is ideally suited to lead our Professional Services here and, in partnership with Luwei Shi, our Asia-Pacific Business Development Managing Director, to help drive the business forward," commented Hervé Vinciguerra, Sophis CEO.
