Strands is proud to announce the opening of its newest location in Singapore, enabling the expansion of operations to span the entire globe. The move is part of the strategic initiative by Strands to invest in the provision of dedicated business services for the Asia-Pacific (APAC) region.
"Our presence in Singapore is an exciting leap forward for Strands as we target a key digital banking region and global financial services hub," says Erik Brieva, Strands CEO.
After exploring market potential in the region over the past year, the choice to move to Singapore was made due to its well-established reputation as a FinTech hub, the availability of best-in-class FinTech professionals and the six-hour time difference with Barcelona. "This new location will also benefit our clients in APAC by facilitating the allocation of resources within the same time zone," added Erik.
"It's thrilling to lead the charge of Strands expansion into Asia," says Xavier Marcillac, APAC Sales Director spearheading the opening of the new office. "This new location will enable Strands to deliver dedicated business development services and eventually locally-based engineering support to further strengthen our commitment to APAC-based clients."
With the additional Singapore-based staff, the number of Strands employees globally now exceeds 100 people. Strands serves more than 300 corporate clients worldwide by elevating their mobile and online banking experiences through the power of FinTech, Big Data and machine learning innovation.
In addition to Singapore, Strands has offices in Barcelona, Buenos Aires, Miami and San Francisco.
