TradingScreen, a provider of execution management systems, is to open a new office in Singapore to support buy-side client relationships in South East Asia and the Pacific region.
Michael Chin, president of TradingScreen, said the new office would support business growth as well as serve existing clients. “We have identified a number of opportunities in the region, including those in emerging markets, which we will better capitalise upon by the addition and commitment of local resources,” he said.
TradingScreen has also appointed Nathan Walker as Head of South East Asia and Pacific. Walker, who previously managed emerging markets and Singapore sales teams at Bloomberg, the financial information provider, will be based in Singapore. He will work jointly with TradingScreen’s Hong Kong-based Head of North Asia, Bernard Ho, who also oversees the company’s Japan business in the region. During his time at Bloomberg, Walker was also part of the firm’s EMS team in Australia.
“With my experience in the use of EMS technology within the Asia-Pacific Buy-Side community, I plan to build on TradingScreen’s success and reputation as the leader in their field,” he said.
TradingScreen provides multi-broker and multi-asset class trading systems to more than 1,000 buy-side firms.
