Broadridge names Apac head

Ian StrudwickFintech Broadridge has appointed Ian Strudwick as managing director and head of Asia Pacific. Strudwick will be responsible for leading the firm’s growth plans in the region, focused on four key markets: Singapore, Hong Kong, Australia and Japan. Based in Singapore, he will report to Samir Pandiri, president of Broadridge International. Strudwick joins from TD Waterhouse where he was most recently managing director and head of global operations and business services for Apac. According to Pandiri, the appointment comes at a transformational time for Broadridge clients in the region. “Financial businesses in Asia are grappling with trends around digitisation, mutualisation, and data and analytics while operating in times of increasing complexity,” said Pandiri. “Capital markets present plenty of growth opportunities, but firms must also navigate increasing challenges from new regulations and market changes.” The appointment comes after Broadridge hired David Ingleson as chief operating officer for Apac. © 2021 funds global asia
