Eastern Fong, regional head of fund services in Asia, will lead Maples Fund Services (Singapore), which will provide middle-office, data aggregation/reporting and fund administration services to Singapore-domiciled funds established by family offices, private wealth managers and institutional investors. In addition, the team will service Cayman Islands funds that require on-the-ground support from Singapore. 

Hugh Thompson, global co-head of fiduciary, will lead Maples Fiduciary (Singapore) which will offer company formation, registered office, company secretarial, client accounting, voluntary liquidations, and directorship services for Singapore-domiciled entities. 

The Singapore team will also provide director services for Cayman, Hong Kong and British Virgin Islands-domiciled entities.

Our presence in Singapore will significantly boost our brand as a regional offering with close ties to our existing office in Hong Kong.”
