CFH Systems has opened an office in Tokyo to support its significant growth plans in the region. A team of three people has been appointed, with the head of the Japanese office to be announced in February.
The company's investment in Japan is fuelled by its success in Asia since opening an office in Hong Kong last February. CFH Systems has exceeded all targets, doubling its business in the region over the last six months and growing a prestigious client base of established banks and brokers.
CFH Systems' offices in Hong Kong and Tokyo will focus on the sales and support of ClearVision, which provides brokers and banks with a complete trading and technology solution, enabling them to manage liquidity, risk, funds and reporting all within one system.
The company forecasts growth of over 50% in the region in 2015. It has a strong sales pipeline in Hong Kong, China and Japan, which has been strengthened further since having a presence at iFX EXPO Asia this week.
Jason Huang, Managing Director of CFH Asia explains, "The combination of our advanced, robust technology and high quality local support seems to be a winning formula in the region. Clients appreciate the flexibility we offer – for example, ClearVision can connect to multiple front end platforms and clients can select to use the full ClearVision suite or individual tools such as our Clear Risk Dashboard, which enables them to monitor real-time client and hedge exposure from a single dashboard.
"We have seen a surge in interest in our advanced risk management tools since the CHF crisis and there is strong demand in the region for our offering. As we extend our presence across Asia with our new Tokyo office, I am confident that we will continue to help an increasing number of clients to operate more efficiently."
ClearVision provides a combination of Prime of Prime interbank liquidity management technology solutions and sophisticated trading technology. With its modular structure, it provides all the tools required by brokers to manage an increasingly complex business with multiple trading platforms, liquidity providers, back office systems and risk books.
