As the Rugby World Cup 2015 gets into full swing and competition across the globe heats up, Apex Asia demonstrates its strength in the global market by stepping easily into the “Above $30bn Administrator AuA” category and walking away with an award for service at the HFM awards; ‘Best Administrator over $30bn for FOHF’.
Asia Pacific has continually been an attractive jurisdiction for asset managers and at the start of this calendar year represented approximately a third of the world economy and global finance. Despite unsatisfying growth in 2015 managers have still managed to produce alpha and postpositive returns, with Asian hedge funds outperforming the MSCI Asia Pacific ex Japan index by over 5%. In an increasingly complex regulatory environment, asset managers in the region are increasingly looking to their fund administrators to administer portfolios dealing with complex stock lending and collateral management requirements. Enhanced services for credit funds and more robust technologies are expected by managers and therefore service providers looking to succeed in the region must be progressive in these areas. Apex has seen exceptional growth in the region over the past year with its APAC AuA increasing by a massive 86% – resulting in both the Singapore and Hong Kong offices upscaling to larger premises.
Apex Asia has maintained a dedicated focus on service levels from its inception. Consistently high levels of customer retention and growth have been a direct result of delivering quality solutions alongside exceptional personal service. Unlike the common Fund Administrator model, Apex has purposefully stationed skilled, well experienced teams across key financial cities in Asia, extending local support to clients. These teams are supported by country and regional MD’s with a quick escalation model – allowing our clients direct access to Senior Management whenever it may be required.
With the support of Apex’s global network of offices, our clients in Asia are afforded global access and jurisdictional expertise. We are constantly engaging with our clients and place great importance on strong communication and relationships with each individual fund. The unrest in Asian markets including a turn to caution in the past couple of months, mangers in the region require a solid and dependable partner in fund administration to allow them time to focus on investing and bucking the trend. A large proportion of the new business at Apex Asia comes from referrals from existing clients – this is testament to the success of our business model and shows great satisfaction in our method of service delivery even in a troubled or uncertain market.”
