Third-party management company FundRock announced the opening of a new branch in Singapore headed by Timothy Walkley, managing director for Asia markets. Tim Walkley has been involved in the investment management industry for over 20 years with a significant experience in Asian markets.

Our clients are always in the centre of what we do and Tim’s significant experience of dealing with Asian based managers will allow us to broaden the solutions we can offer them in the region”.
