Eze Software has achieved impressive growth over the past two years, increasing its presence and market share across APAC. In September, the software company appointed Laura Ryan as Head of Sales in the region. KB Asset Management Singapore was searching for a partnership that would provide it with the value and expertise needed to reach their desired goals in the most efficient and timely manner.
R.G. Manalac, Eze Software’s Managing Director in APAC, also reacted to the partnership: “We are excited to partner with KB Asset Management to help grow its offshore business. Asset management in APAC is experiencing tremendous growth, and end investors are increasingly demanding from asset managers a solid technology infrastructure for investment operations. We look forward to supporting KB Asset Management in its efforts to create a scalable technology operation.”
Strategic partnerships are not new to KB Asset Management. Earlier this year, the company teamed up with Axioma, a provider of risk and portfolio management solutions. Axioma assisted in the expansion of the group’s market penetration in Europe, by offering solutions to enhance the company’s equity portfolios.
