The Greenwich, Conn.-based institutional asset manager has opened bases in Hong Kong and Singapore. Making their home at those new digs are William Shia in Hong Kong and Andrew Williams in Singapore.

"Bill and Andy are great additions to our team and both bring a strong knowledge of the local markets."
