Opus expands APAC horizons
Compliance and risk management solution provider Opus has expanded its presence in Asia, opening a new office in Singapore.

The expansion is intended to help regional clients in their compliance with local and global anti-money laundering and anti-bribery and corruption regulations, and to help them mitigate third-party risks.

According to Opus, the move follows prompting from Asian regulators, including the Monetary Authority of Singapore, for companies to improve their risk management and compliance programmes.

Emanuele Conti, CEO of Opus, said: “Companies today are faced with myriad regulations that have global implications. In Asia Pacific, as companies increase their investment levels, managing risk in this increasingly complex regulatory environment is essential to effectively drive growth.”

Ben Gould, Opus’s managing director for Europe, the Middle East and Africa, and the Asia Pacific region, commented: “We’re excited to expand in Asia Pacific so we can directly engage and service our clients in the region.”

“We also see significant opportunities to serve regional companies which operate on a global scale, helping them efficiently and effectively manage risk.”
