Following the opening of the DMS Hong Kong office six years ago, our client base has now grown to include not only Hong Kong but also the wider Asia-Pacific region. As a result of this expansion, DMS has decided to open a Singapore office to better serve its clients. This new location means the value of our offering has been further strengthened, as we now offer professional, independent directors in the Asia time zone (SGT) and with fluency in Mandarin and Cantonese language skills that are key to the region.

DMS is pleased to be serving not only hedge fund clients but also those involved in private equity and venture capital. DMS' clients include some of the largest asset managers in Asia as well as start-up and emerging funds. This new office location will further strengthen DMS' ability to service clients in other service offerings including banking + custody, AIFMD/UCITS and International Tax Compliance (FATCA/CRS) which have seen continued growth.

Niaz Khan, Managing Director, Asia-Pacific comments "Opening DMS Singapore is another exciting milestone of our commitment to the asset-management industry in Asia. We continue to see an increased demand for our professional directorship services along with our other Risk & Compliance services in the region. We are very pleased to open our Singapore office to continue to serve the Asian asset management industry."

Anne Storie, Chief Executive Officer of DMS, noted: "The recent and continued expansion of our Asian client base is further evidence of our team's tireless work to develop a strong network of clients across various fund structures. The addition of a Singapore office means that DMS is now even better placed geographically to continue to achieve best results for its clients in this region."

In addition to the new team in Singapore, we are pleased to have Connie Wong relocating from our Hong Kong office, who brings with her senior level experience in fund governance. Connie has gained extensive senior level experience in the hedge funds and private equities for offshore and on shore vehicles across multiple jurisdictions. Prior to joining DMS, Connie was a Manager at PricewaterhouseCoopers.
