Trust group Zedra adds to Singapore presence

Independently owned trust, corporate and fund services group Zedra has announced the appointment of Lisa Tan to the role of head of corporate services in its Singapore office.

Before joining Zedra, Tan, pictured left, started out ten years ago at KPMG, where she specialised in corporate income tax compliance and advisory work for large multinational companies.

Later, while working with global trust and fiduciary providers, says Zedra, Tan “built up substantial experience” in setting up corporate structures for both private clients and large multinationals, with a particular focus on “Singapore-based structures”.

Zedra Singapore managing director Wendy Sim paid tribute to chartered accountant Tan’s “extensive experience” of both international taxation and the establishment and administration of multi-jurisdictional corporate structures for both private clients and large multinational companies.

Sim said that Tan would add “a new dimension” to Zedra’s Singaporean team

Tan said that Zedra’s approach to the market, “being independently owned and entrepreneurially minded”, would open up new opportunities for Zedra to provide innovative solutions to clients.

She added that part of Zedra’s strength was in its network of colleagues in Asia and worldwide, a total of 14 offices.

Zedra added that it is committed to expanding its business across the important North and South Asia markets from its offices in Singapore, which it described as “one of the more vibrant and faster-growing teams” in the region.

The past 18 months have seen significant growth for Zedra. As reported in International Investment, in May the company announced that it was opening a US office in Miami.

In March, it added a Sydney office, while last December it acquired a presence in Luxembourg.

It made a strong push into the UK market in October 2016 when Zedra acquired Barclays’ UK trust business.
