Scila AB, a Stockholm-based independent provider of trade surveillance, anti-money laundering and risk management technology, announced today the official opening of a regional office in Singapore. According to the press release, the firm seeks to cover the Asia-Pacific region with the manoeuvre.
“I am excited to be on-site in Singapore and start up our regional office. We have a strong value proposition and can offer regional customers modern technology to detect market abuse, prevent money-laundering and manage risk,” Erik Holm, the newly appointed Head of Sales Asia-Pacific at Scila, commented.
The firm has been working with customers in the region since 2009, covering a wide range of customers in the country. With the new office, Scila will offer support for existing customers, as well as perform sales and business development-related activities. “Scila has supported regional customers for more than 12 years and has a growing customer base in Singapore and other key financial centers in Asia. The choice of Singapore as a regional hub was due to the excellent business environment, solid regulatory framework, and state-of-the-art financial infrastructure. We look forward to meeting customers in the region”, says Lars-Ivar Sellberg, the Executive Chairman and one of the Co-Founders at Scila, stated.
