Financial Architects (FinArch), an integrated finance and risk vendor, has opened a new regional office in Bangkok, Thailand. This is the company’s third office in Asia-Pacific.
Chris Puype, co-founder and managing director for Asia, said: “Thailand accounts for many large financial institutions, all of which have growing finance and risk requirements such as IFRS and Basel II & III. With increasing requests from these financial institutions, and our success in Asia, it was imperative to establish an additional footprint here to better serve our customers. With demand for integrated finance and risk solutions on the rise we will continue with our expansion plans and believe we are well-positioned to achieve on our growth objectives for 2011.”
