BI-SAM, a provider of performance attribution and reporting software solutions for the global asset management industry, announced new appointments, increasing its presence in Asian markets.
The AuM growth in the Asian Asset Management market is driving the need for high performing technology solutions to maintain its development as well as to provide its investors with required transparency.
BI-SAM has recently been selected by some high profile global asset managers for multi-site implementations of its B-One solution, enabling these managers to further develop their activities in the region.
In response to this demand for its services in the region, BI-SAM has opened 2 new offices in Melbourne and in Singapore, in addition to its existing Hong Kong office.
Sally Armstrong will be leading BI-SAM’s implementation activities in Australia from Melbourne as head of client support, implementation and pre-sales.
Originally from Australia, Sally joined BI-SAM in January 2010 as implementation manager and has been part of BI-SAM’s London consultancy team since then. She has over 10 years experience, mainly working for Schroder Investment Management and specialising in performance solutions.
Henri Giacobbi will be leading BI-SAM’s business development activities in Asia Pacific and will be based in Singapore. He has 20 years of experience within the asset management industry and started his career as business analyst and product manager at Linedata, before joining Misys Asset Management as a sales representative. He then worked for various consulting and software companies before becoming sales director at Natixis Investor Servicing and then at Tocqueville Finance.
“I am really excited to be joining BI-SAM,” commented Henri, “BI-SAM has an impressive track record of successes and I believe is well positioned for deeper market penetration and growth. I am looking forward to helping to expand our sales efforts in Asia-Pac where there is an acute need for a platform like B-One.”
“The appointments of Sally and Henri are part of our strategic move into the Asian region, and our new Asian offices will enable us to better answer both local and regional markets needs. Additional consultants will join our teams in Shanghai, Hong Kong, Singapore and Australia”, add Alexandre Harkous, group CEO of BI-SAM.
