Vistra Fund Services sets up first Asian operation in Hong Kong (with photo)

     Fund administration service provider Vistra Fund Services recently set up its first Asian operation in Hong Kong, as part of its expansion in Asia Pacific.

     The move follows the rapid growth and acquisitions in the region by fund management clients of Vistra's Jersey and Luxembourg offices, according to Managing Director of Vistra Fund Services Asia Ltd, Mr Charles Kwun.  

     Mr Kwun said, "Vistra has a strong track record designing and implementing bespoke fund solutions for clients in Europe and now we are exporting that knowledge and experience and making it available to Asian fund clients.

     "Given Hong Kong's central location in Asia and its status as China's global financial centre, the city represents a strategic foothold for our first step in expanding into Asia," Mr Kwun added.

     Vistra Fund Services Asia Ltd will focus on building the team in Hong Kong to provide fund administration and associated services to clients throughout Asia. The company will evaluate business growth and further opportunities, as it plans expansion of its regional coverage alongside other group offices.

     Associate Director-General of Investment Promotion, Mr Charles Ng, welcomed Vistra Fund Services' entry in Hong Kong. "Hong Kong's strategic location in Asia and its sound financial and regulatory systems make it a perfect location for financial services companies like Vistra to set up here. As the global economic focus continues to shift to Asia, we anticipate more financial multinationals will locate in Hong Kong."
