Chan Chong San commented
I’m excited to be joining Edgewater at a time of tremendous expansion in the APAC region. Edgewater’s commitment – with both experience and ‘boots on the ground’ – to understanding local markets truly sets the firm apart and provides clients with capabilities and opportunities that cannot be found elsewhere.
Chan Chong San’s appointment follows significant investment in Asia by Edgewater in response to client and market demand, growing headcount across development, operations and sales teams in the region. Equinix Singapore was also expanded the firm’s footprint, adding capacity and redundancy at TY3 Equinix Tokyo.
Matt Kassel, Chief Operating Officer at Edgewater, said:
Chong San has joined Edgewater as technology is rapidly changing the FX market globally and in particular the APAC region. Although we have been present in Asia for over a decade, Edgewater is now providing unprecedented power and access to local banks and financial institutions. This is exemplified through new technology for trading Asian NDF pair pairs. Chong San is the perfect person to lead this effort, and we’re thrilled to welcome him to the team.
