The decision to expand in the growing marketplace has become inevitable, as there are significant opportunities for eVestment in Australia and Asia
Atlanta, Georgia (PRWEB) October 30, 2009
As a major component in its ongoing global expansion effort, eVestment Alliance (eA) is proud to announce the launch of its first Asia Pacific office, which will be located in Sydney, Australia.
Leading the new headquarters as Vice President, Asia Pacific is Frithjof "Fridge" van Zyp. Fridge has worked as a senior analyst, since he joined eVestment over four years ago. He will relocate from the U.S. headquarter location in Marietta, Georgia.
"The decision to expand in the growing marketplace has become inevitable, as there are significant opportunities for eVestment in Australia and Asia," said Principal and CEO Jim Minnick. "Selecting a suitable leader to oversee the growth has been a fastidious process, and we believe that Fridge van Zyp has consistently demonstrated a solid ability of working with our valued clients and the investment management community."
In its long-term commitment to servicing the global environment, eVestment is currently working with three of the leading investment consultants in Australia including Watson Wyatt, JANA Investment Advisers and Frontier Investment Consulting. It plans to continue expanding its collection of information in the region.
"After releasing the eASE Global Database and signing Watson Wyatt as our first global client earlier in the year, eVestment's goal has been to expand the service to other leading investment consultancies," said Principal and COO Matt Crisp. "We hope that eVestment's comprehensive investment manager research portal will continue to alleviate the complexity of research and due diligence worldwide, as it has for North America since 2000."
In 2008, eVestment established its European headquarter location in London, England.
