Ortec Finance, expert provider of investment decision technology and solutions, today announced their continued global expansion with a new office in Hong Kong. The office is open from October 2017 with Marco Hoogendijk taking up position as Managing Director.

Fred Heemskerk, Head of Global Markets at Ortec Finance commented; ‘We are proud that Ortec Finance is increasingly recognized as an organization that provides high-quality and dependable solutions in the field of global asset management. Our presence in Asia has been growing for several years now and we have become an important partner to several large Asian institutional investors, insurers and asset managers, helping them to improve their investment decision making process. Opening a regional office underlines our growth and development and demonstrates our commitment to that market and our clients there. Marco has extensive experience in the Asian financial marketplace spanning the last 13 years and so is extraordinarily well placed to lead this new chapter.’

Our technology, and our framework for modelling future developments of assets and liabilities - powered by a unique economic scenario generator - enables our clients to analyze P&L and balance sheet consequences for various investment strategies resulting in more informed and better investment decisions. We expect our expertise and solutions regarding strategic asset allocation, asset liability management and risk and solvency management to be of particular interest to insurance companies, institutional investors and asset managers, and will also be keen to introduce our performance attribution solutions to them.”
