TABB Group Announces Strategic Alliance with Singapore-based AsiaEx
Capital Markets Firm Expands Research and Consulting Services across Asia
NEW YORK, LONDON & SINGAPORE, April 24, 2012 – TABB Group announced today that it is expanding its research and strategic advisory services to financial firms across the Asia-Pacific (APAC) region through an exclusive strategic alliance with AsiaEx Consulting Pte Ltd. Based in Singapore, AsiaEx is led by capital markets industry veteran Chris Price.
“We’re very pleased to be working with AsiaEx because we quickly recognized that their deep understanding of the Asian markets and highly focused, on-the-ground, Asian-centric coverage will have tremendous value globally for our clients in the US, Canada, the UK and Europe,” says Larry Tabb, founder and CEO at TABB Group.
“The listed and OTC markets in Asia are extremely diverse and idiosyncratic, operating in different regulatory and cultural environments and at disparate levels of development and liquidity,” says Chris Price, founder of AsiaEx with over 20 years experience in Asia’s capital markets. “The business of trading and settlement across the APAC region is also entering a new era as capital markets and technology solutions develop in Asia against the backdrop of a changing regulatory environments in the US and Europe. This has generated strong interest in the Asian markets by clients who need to understand how the market dynamics, technology infrastructure and legal constraints affect opportunities for trading and providing related services in the region. This is especially true in the area of more automated trading. We are extremely happy to form this alliance with Tabb Group.”
