PDL International expands operations into Hong Kong and the Far East


PDL International, a provider of investment services to institutional and high net worth clients, has expanded its distribution activity in Hong Kong and the Far East.

According to PDL International, investor appetite in the region is changing due to the volatility of financial markets over the past decade, and there is significant demand for alternative investments which offer low correlation to the financial markets in the region

The company’s activity in the area will be led by Keith Campbell Golding, chief representative for Asia. Golding was first vice president of BSI Bank London, designing investment strategies for high net worth individuals in the Asia, Middle East, and South America, and director of EBC Amro Bank, where he managed discretionary funds for clients in the Middle East and Europe.

Katherine Spiteri, group finance director at PDL International, says: “When you consider the opportunities in the market in Hong Kong and Far East alongside the extensive experience of Keith and the rest of our team and our place as the provider of alternative strategies and products, we believe we are well placed to benefit and to be extremely successful. All of our products produce attractive, consistent returns and have low or no correlation to capital markets and low volatility, characteristics which investors are demanding. Investors in Hong Kong and elsewhere have already reacted strongly to these developments, and we are committed to spending more time in the region to build long-lasting relationships.”

Golding says: “I am very confident that PDL International can build a significant client base in Hong Kong and the Far East. The market there is well established and is regarded as Asia’s financial centre and one of  the global centres of investment management, with assets under management there in excess of USD1.6trn. A large number of investors and institutions choose to be based in Hong Kong, and we believe that the appetite for our rapidly expanding products there is considerable.”
