2018 eprivateclient Top Trust Company Ocorian has launched a new package of services tailored specifically for those wishing to invest and operate into or out of the Africa, Middle East and Asia (AMEA) region, following its acquisition of African and Middle East business services provider Abax Corporate Services (ABAX) in April 2018.
Alongside its existing operations in Singapore, the addition of an office in Dubai and expanded presence in Mauritius - as well as representation in South Africa and Cote d’Ivoire, Ocorian can now offer bespoke investment and expansion services through its newly expanded AMEA operation.
The addition of ABAX and its 330+ strong team of regional experts increases Ocorian’s workforce to over 700 worldwide.
Nick Cawley, group chief executive of Ocorian, said: “Africa continues to attract high levels of investment from both the US and Europe (and from France and the UK, in particular) and that investment is forecast to increase. It’s important then to establish the right infrastructure to support and service those investments – not just for that money going in, but also for the significant number of African based investors looking to invest in region and beyond.
"In addition, the UAE also plays a critical role in many investors’ plans and for many “existing clients who value the ease with which they can do business but still within a well-regulated secure environment,” Mr Cawley added.
“Its significance as a global market will continue to increase and we see the development of our operations in Dubai as a key entry point for an ever-growing number of European, North American and African investors as well as individuals and companies from the wider Gulf."
