Asia Matters Business Awards

The Asia Matters Business Awards finalists 2022 included 18 world class organisations. What links them all is a solid strategic approach to expansion in Asia, investment in innovation to move up the value chain, a commitment to Asia, building strong win-win partnerships and developing world class products tailored to the market – quite simply they are doing a brilliant job.

We are so delighted to be named winner of the Most Successful Market Entry Asia Award, recognising the speed and scale of our entry and expansion in the Asian region and the fantastic team that has made this possible.
Our commitment to the Asian market began in 2018 with the opening of offices in Hong Kong and Beijing, following the signing of a number of large strategic partnerships with some of the largest banks and brokerage firms in the region.
In 2018 we also began partnering with Japanese companies and within 12 months had established a sales office in Tokyo, followed by a Service Delivery Centre in Miyazaki.
Today we partner with some of Asia’s top banks and large multi-national corporations, and this year we’ve also expanded into South Korea on the back of our momentous client win of Coupang, having supported their IPO on the New York Stock Exchange.
The use of equity-based incentives by Asian companies is still relatively new which means the potential is enormous. Now that we have built such a solid foundation, I am confident that our Asian business will grow from strength to strength.
