DST Managing Director Asia Pacific, Philip Hogan, announced the appointment of Meredith Odgers as Marketing Director for Asia Pacific, based in Hong Kong, and said the company was committed to growing its footprint in Asia and Australia by bringing its Anova post-trade data management and analytics platform for investment firms and wealth managers to the market.
Commenting on Odgers’ appointment, Hogan said the company was seeing increased increasing demand for sophisticated technology solutions to support the future of the investment management industry in Asia Pacific, which was growing both in volume and complexity.
“DST Global Solutions is well-established and continues to collaborate with several strategic globally renowned specialist firms in the asset management and insurance sectors with our award winning HiPortfolio asset servicing and investment accounting solution.
According to Hogan, the availability of Anova in the Asia Pacific market is timely, as it is designed to support the “rapidly growing needs of high net worth individuals in Asia and the exponential growth and consolidation of pension assets in Australia.”
“These areas will be a key focus for Meredith whose expertise in financial technology marketing will be instrumental to driving our business forward in the Asia Pacific region.”
Odgers joins DST with 15 years of experience as a marketing professional, largely in the financial services sector in Asia and Australia.
