EMAS Fintech, a Philippines-registered investment fund operator targeting private investors and investor communities, has opened its first regional support centre in Malaysia.
The new centre will support EMAS’s cross-industry digital investment trading platform to regional investors. The centre will assist to integrate and aggregate investments, right size portfolios, provide access to wider industry data, apply predictive analytics to generate insights which can improve investment performance and productivity.
EMAS CEO officer Jason Kellady said: “This regional support centre is the first of six planned regional support centres. It represents the first phase of our business plan. In the next 24 months, we will gradually expand and increase our presence from Southeast Asia to East Asia, South Asia, Europe, Oceania and North America with an aim of 20 countries and regions.
“We plan to recruit a core team of 15 to 30 specialists and account managers, then gradually expand to cope with demand from our subscribers. Malaysia has an abundance of qualified talent that is used to dealing with a multi-lingual, multi-cultural environment. We are capitalising on this advantage, which owes to this nation’s history of being the crossroad of global trade.
“Despite the Covid-19 pandemic, we think the opportunities in the digital currency or eFiat market are growing. It was valued at USD1.03 billion last year and we agree with projections that it will exceed USD1.40 billion in five years, growing at a CAGR of 5 per cent to 8% during this period. The shifts in global markets must be carefully scrutinised, monitored and we have assigned this task to our regional support centre.”
