In a press release yesterday, Zedra, a specialist in trust, corporate and fund services, has announced its expansion to its Singapore team to service growth in business relationships and client portfolios in Asia with the appointment of two new business heads.
Yuan Yuan Woo, executive director; and Nithya Camoens, director, will be based in Singapore to drive new business, foster relationship building and support the underlying efforts of the company as it continues to expand and grow in Asia.
Woo will head new business for trust services where she will also focus on key client relationship management. She began her career in tax services for PwC, before moving to a number of private banks including Citibank, DBS and UBS where she advised private clients on succession and estate planning matters. Woo is a member of the Institute of Singapore Chartered Accountant (ISCA) and a certified financial planner with Financial Planning Association of Singapore. She is also a qualified trust and estate practitioner with STEP.
On the other hand, Camoens will be responsible for developing corporate solutions to complement ZEDRA Singapore’s private client offering.
Camoens had most recently spent five years at PwC Singapore, where she was responsible for managing the company secretarial practice there. Prior to that, she worked for a private management group whose operations spanned Asia, where she held various senior positions for operations in Malaysia, Singapore and Hong Kong, as well as assisted in the setup of offices in India, Mauritius and Cambodia.
Commenting on the new hires, Wendy Sim, managing director at ZEDRA Singapore said: “We are developing an experienced and highly qualified team by adding premium resources to help us manage our growing client base and, most importantly, to underscore our continued commitment to providing excellent client service.”
