Ipreo adds staff to Capital Markets business

Continues trend of expanding resources dedicated to Asia-Pacific clients

Hong Kong – August 03, 2010 – Ipreo, a leading global provider of market intelligence and productivity solutions to investment banks and corporations, announced the latest in a series of new hires and staff movements designed to expand operations and build up client support in the APAC region: Jeffrey Yeung comes on board to manage key clients on the Capital Markets side of Ipreo’s business, as well as all clients (both Corporate and Capital Markets) of Ipreo’s BD Suite of buy-side intelligence products, all of whom benefit from access to 24/7 customer service.

Mr. Yeung has a degree in Economics from the University of Toronto and a Master of Finance degree from Polytechnic University in Hong Kong. In addition to his native tongue of Cantonese, he is also fluent in English, Mandarin and Japanese, having lived and studied in Canada and Japan. He is responsible for managing Capital Markets clients in the Asia-Pacific region, specifically broker-dealers in Hong Kong, Taiwan, Australia, and Singapore.

“Jeffrey’s language skills and international experience make him a real asset to the Asia team,” said Justin Reynolds, Managing Director of Asia-Pacific for Ipreo. “He has hit the ground running, already having completed the implementation of our buy-side intelligence application into the largest broker dealer in Taiwan, along with another significant integration in Australia.”

Ipreo’s Capital Market’s business in Asia includes deal execution (bookbuilding) software, market analytics, and investor prospecting solutions. Broker-dealers, in particular, rely upon Ipreo’s BD Advanced and BD Vision applications – both of which leverage Ipreo’s industry-leading buy-side database – to manage their investor prospecting and communications activities, along with management reporting and sales & research productivity monitoring.
