Wells Fargo has ambitious growth plans for its Asian hedge-fund administration business.
The bank aims to increase the number of its clients in the region by 20% per year. Wells opened a Hong Kong office in December.
“In terms of geographic expansion, we’re looking more towards funds in Hong Kong,” the business’s CEO, Christopher Kundro, told Bloomberg News.
Wells currently services 20 hedge funds in Asia and has been seeing growth of about 10% to 15% per year.
