CorpXSasia Ltd. was founded in 2014 with the aim of providing a fresh look at Corporate Access in Asia, as well as Emerging Markets, in response to the new FCA and MiFID II regulations. Driven by a fundamental change in the investment banking industry, changes in regulation have forces Institutional Investment Managers to re-think Corporate Access.
We strongly believe that independent Corporate Access is a direct result of the on going process of unbundling and dis-intermediation within the financial service industry and that it is here to stay. The core issue for independent Corporate Access is to provide the same quality (or better) Corporate Access as a core business in both a cost efficient and transparent way.
The team is currently made up of 5 ex-Investment Banking professionals and fifteen Corporate Access Specialists who all know their way around Asia. We currently work from two offices in both London and Hong Kong whilst several of our Corporate Access specialists are based in the various Asian capitals.
CorpXSasia Ltd. was founded by Arjen in 2014 on the firm belief that the unbundling of equity commissions would result in a new market opportunity for Corporate Access. Arjen worked in different Asian and Emerging Markets equity sales roles, latest at BNP Paribas, and various other Investment Banks over the past 23 years, both in Asia and in Europe. He has built up a wealth of experience and contacts relevant to Equity, Asset Management and Corporate Access and is the driving force behind CorpXSasia and its sister companies. His intrinsic motivation lies in his general interest all things asian and in seeing the need and potential for fundamental change of old banking structures. He is convinced there is a bright future for a new way of organising corporate access based on skill, network and understanding the objectives of all parties involved.
Nic is our external advisor on Asian asset management and corporate access services. He was Asian research sales and Head of Sales at Credit Suisse and BNP Paribas and is currently a divisional director at 1762 Family Wealth Management in London. Before investment banking, Nic was Asian equity portfolio manager for AMP and Guardian Royal Exchange running unit trust, life and pension funds.
He has maintained a strong network in the investment management community, in-depth knowledge of Asia and has many years experience in the management of high value-added reverse roadshows and banking roadshows for institutional investors and corporates respectively. As part of his remit at BNP Nic was closely involved in the evolving management of the challenges presented by MIFID 2 and believes that this and other regulatory change will re-shape the equities industry in such a way that independent Corporate Access will become the norm in the not too distant future.
