Fiduciary and business services firm ATC has opened an office in Shanghai, China.
All the necessary regulatory and licensing approvals have been received from the Chinese authorities.
ATC has previously serviced China-based clients via itsr Hong Kong office.
Following the opening in Shanghai, ATC will have 19 offices in 17 countries across Europe, the Caribbean and the Asia Pacific region.
The new office will be multi-disciplinary, supporting corporate and institutional clients on both inbound and outbound transactions.
“The continued success and growth of our Asia practice, and the huge significance of China in the world economy, have made on-the-ground capabilities in Shanghai both a natural step and a necessity,” says Hans Sluyser, ATC’s group management board member for Asia.
Sonny Gao, the new director of business development for China, adds: "I am delighted to have joined ATC and to be part of the process of developing an office in Shanghai. ATC’s China focus and strong emphasis on the provision of high quality services should ensure local success which matches that of their other international offices.”
