Broadridge has appointed Ian Strudwick as general manager and head of APAC as part of its strategy to capitalise on opportunities for business growth in the post-pandemic recovery and demonstrate commitment to the region. Strudwick brings 23 years of experience in the financial services and technology sector to Broadridge and joins from TD Securities, where he was most recently managing director and head of global operations and business services for APAC.
Strudwick is based in Singapore and will report to Samir Pandiri, president of Broadridge International. He will lead Broadridge’s expansion strategies in Asia, and will be responsible for driving growth in the company’s key APAC markets of Singapore, Hong Kong, Australia and Japan.
“Financial businesses in Asia are grappling with trends around digitisation, mutualisation, and data and analytics while operating in times of increasing complexity,” says Pandiri. “Capital markets present plenty of growth opportunities, but firms must also navigate increasing challenges from new regulations and market changes. Ian joins at a transformational time for our clients in the region. They will benefit from his deep cross-market industry expertise as Broadridge supports them in the adoption and application of next-generation technologies.”
Strudwick’s appointment builds on the recent hire of David Ingleson as chief operating officer for APAC and strengthens the company’s regional leadership team. Broadridge has operated in Asia for over two decades, supporting financial services clients with business transformation, revenue scaling, and reducing costs and operations complexity through the implementation of technologies including AI, blockchain and cloud, and techniques for digitalisation.
