Oliver Johnson added: “SimCorp’s depth of experience in APAC and the quality of its talent are well-known in the financial services industry and was one of the key attractions for me to join the team. The average tenure of SimCorp’s team in APAC far exceeds the industry average and demonstrates the company’s dedication to providing clients with not only the best people, but also the continuity of a long-term vision. I am excited to be given this opportunity to develop the business regionally and to help our current and future clients unlock more value through SimCorp’s world-class solutions.”
