Kinetic Partners, the global financial services advisory firm, has expanded its global offering by opening two new offices, one in Chicago and one in Singapore.
Kinetic Partners' Chicago office, led by Associate Director Kathryn Lattner, will have a team focused on Forensic & Dispute Advisory and Corporate Recovery services. The new office is based in the River North neighbourhood of Chicago, next to the city's prominent global financial district.
Kinetic Partners' office in Singapore, located in Raffles Place and headed up by Associate Director Eddie Lim, will provide clients with tailored regulatory compliance advisory and consulting as well as a range of forensic and due diligence services, aimed at easing the increased burden on corporations' internal resources to ensure compliance with continuing regulatory changes.
Kinetic Partners also recently passed another milestone by signing its 5,000th client engagement since launching operations in 2005.
Geoff Varga, Global Head of Corporate Recovery said:
"Signing our 5,000th client engagement is a fantastic milestone for Kinetic Partners. As our business continues to expand, it has become apparent that to further capitalize on demand from clients, alongside providing the best service to them, we need to expand our presence the other key US financial centres. Chicago's thriving financial centre fit the bill, presenting an ideal environment to continue to grow our US footprint. I am looking forward to developing our team in the coming year as we look to build our client base and product offering in this city."
AnnMarie Croswell, Partner at Kinetic Partners' Hong Kong office said:
"We have seen significant growth since we opened an office in Hong Kong two years ago. Singapore is an equally important part of Asia Pacific's financial services industry, and will soon emerge as one of the strongest in the world. So it was a natural progression for Kinetic Partners to open an office there as well. The jurisdiction's sound economic and political environment, conducive legal and tax policies, reputationion for integrity, and strict enforcement against crime and money laundering, have contributed to its status as an International Finance Center. Singapore's future success is something that we want to be a part of and we are excited to grow alongside our clients' and the city's success."
