Ogier Global opens new Singapore office
Ogier Global has expanded its footprint in Asia with the opening of a new Singapore office and the appointment of two new associate directors.
The new Singapore office strengthens Ogier Global's established presence in the region, having opened a Hong Kong office in 2007, a Tokyo office in 2008 and an office in Shanghai in 2011.
Launched in response to increasing client demand for experienced independent directors in the Asia time zone, the standalone fiduciary services business will provide director services and corporate administration services to Cayman, BVI and Singapore vehicles, including anti-money laundering (AML) officer and Automatic Exchange of Information (AEOI) services to clients in South-East Asia.
Mei Luo and Connie Chan have been appointed as associate directors in Singapore and have a combined 35 years' experience in supporting asset managers, institutional clients and corporates with their governance, corporate administration and regulatory and compliance needs.
"The new Singapore office is an exciting milestone for Ogier Global and represents our commitment to the Asia market. It's also an important strategic step for the business, providing us with a greater level of on-the-ground Asian coverage and insight than ever before," said Ogier Global Group COO Graham Gurney.
"Connie and Mei are extremely qualified and talented additions to the Ogier Global team, we're delighted to have them, and I'm looking forward to seeing Ogier Global continue to excel and grow in the region."
The Ogier Global team in Singapore, which is independent of Ogier Legal, works with a range of leading professional services firms and legal advisors in the jurisdiction and internationally, across a range of industries including investment funds, private wealth, real estate and corporate law.
Mei has more than 15 years' experience in the offshore services industry covering investment funds and structured finance directorships, AML oversight, private wealth structuring, as well as entity incorporation and maintenance. Connie has more than 20 years' experience in corporate secretarial services and advises clients on Singapore company formations and all aspects of statutory administration and annual compliance. Both are fluent in English and Mandarin.
