BPL Global today announced the opening of its Singapore subsidiary, following on from the opening of its Hong Kong office in early 2011.

Co-founder heads second Asian office to herald further regional expansion

Anthony Palmer, one of the founding directors of the firm in 1983, is the new company’s chief executive, with Harry McIndoe as his deputy. Both have relocated from London to set up the new office.

“Our immediate focus will be local financial institutions including the banks, where we see the biggest gap in the market for our services,” says Anthony Palmer, “although we will also be working with the Singapore subsidiaries of our multinational clients. These include commodity traders and exporters – a specialist area for BPL Global and a good fit with Singapore’s position as the regional hub for trade and finance.”

Located in Raffles Place in the heart of Singapore’s central business district, BPL Global is committed to Singapore as its Asian head office alongside its Hong Kong branch, which is headed by Peter Gilbert.
