Surecomp, the leading global provider of trade finance and supply chain finance solutions for banks and corporations, announced during Sibos 2015 the formal opening of a seventh regional development and support center in Singapore.
The new Singapore center, joins Surecomp’s other regional centers in the US, Chile, UK, Germany, Israel and China.
The Surecomp offices in Singapore are located in Tower 2 of the Asia Square complex, a twin-tower mixed-use development comprising two million square feet of grade-A office space. The complex also includes the 280-room Westin Hotel, 60,000 square feet of retail space, and “The Cube” – a 100,000 square foot open public space that features a regular program of exhibitions and performances. Asia Square Tower 2 is located in close proximity to three MRT stations (Raffles Place, Marina Bay and Downtown).
Surecomp joins more than 80 international organizations that have made Asia Square their Singapore headquarters.
Surecomp has appointed Anat Elgrichi to lead the Singapore development and support center. A 20-year industry veteran with vast experience in the APAC and EMEA regions gained with the likes of Barclays and Citibank, Anat will apply her skills and expertise for the achievement of immediate and long-term Surecomp regional goals.
“We have been planning to open a second Asia Pacific development and support center, in addition to our center in Beijing, for some time. Although a number of other locations were considered, after discussing our ideas with many of our regional clients it was the ‘Singapore factor’ that finally won us over,” said Joel Koschitzky, Surecomp Chairman. “With Asia Pacific being one of the fastest growing regions in the world, Singapore’s strategic location proved the place to be. We look forward to offering our ever-growing base of APAC clients even better service and support.”
