Hedge fund regulatory services provider IMS HedgeOp announced the opening of its Hong Kong office.
This will be the first Asian location for IMS HedgeOp, the resulting firm following the merger between HedgeOp and IMS Group last year. The new office will provide “compliance consultancy, training and software across the region to support local and international firms in their efforts to manage the burden of increased extraterritorial and global regulation, according to a statement released Wednesday.
The Hong Kong office will be run by Jonathan Currie, who was formerly the head of IMS Group’s regulatory transactions team in London.
With offices around the world including New York and London, IMS HedgeOp focuses on helping investment managers meet their compliance and regulatory obligations.
