New Broker Focuses Exclusively On Southeast Asia

Jul 15 2013 | 4:16am ET

U.S.-based broker Decker & Co is positioning itself to take advantage of the rapidly growing Asian-focused fund management industry.

The newly-launched firm is fully dedicated to the Southeast Asia frontier space.

“Today's hedge fund manager requires not just ease of transactions but in-depth intel on foreign investments,” said Mark Decker, CEO of the eponymous firm. “Decker will offer hedge fund managers access to the best local research and listed corporates in the ASEAN region through its specialized partnership approach. We sell our partners’ brands regionally, unlike other firms that repackage them as their own.”

Decker has more than 20 years’ experience in the region including positions in Hong Kong with Bear Stearns, Lehman Brothers and CLSA. Decker was also director of equities at SCB Securities in Thailand, which has had a consistent top-three market share. Decker was responsible for the opening of the West Coast office of Kim Eng Securities in 2009.
 
Decker & Co’s network includes broker partners in Vietnam, Sri Lanka, Malaysia, India, Bangladesh, Indonesia, Hong Kong, Thailand, Singapore, Pakistan and Cambodia. The firm’s clearing partner is Broadcort, a division of Merrill Lynch.
