âThe China financial market is exceptionally fast paced. To be nimble in this ever-changing environment, and to be able to best cater to our customers, we needed an investment management system that is robust,â said Fengming Zhang, Executive Vice President, China Life Asset Management Company. âCharles Riverâs proven system, local knowledge and 24x7 regional support is critical to our growth strategy. We now have comprehensive portfolio management, and pre- and post-trade compliance capabilities that allow us to adhere easily to client mandates for our domestic Chinese business.â
âChina Life Asset Management Company is a key strategic partner and Charles Riverâs first domestic asset management client in China,â said Cameron Field, Managing Director, Asia Pacific, Charles River Development. "As China rapidly deregulates its capital markets system, we are seeing increased demand by Chinese asset managers for a comprehensive front- to middle-office platform that can manage complex investment strategies as well as domestic products. Charles River IMS gives our clients the flexibility and necessary tools to create and manage portfolios of any asset class, including local Chinese equity and fixed income investments.â
Charles River serves over 315 clients worldwide, including 19 clients in Japan, and more than 100 client sites across 14 countries in Asia Pacific. With 50 specialists serving the region, many of them bilingual Japanese/English and Mandarin/English speakers, Charles River maintains Asia Pacific headquarters in Melbourne, offices in Tokyo and Singapore and has a regional presence in Brisbane and Sydney.
