OPIM and Solas announce strategic partnership for China and Asia’s emerging fund program

    HONG KONG, June 15, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- OP Investment Management ("OPIM"), Asia's leading hedge fund platform, and Solas Fiduciary Services ("Solas"), a leading regional provider of independent directorship services, jointly announce that they have entered a strategic partnership to provide a one-stop solution adding Solas's regulatory and fiduciary offering to OPIM's award-winning regulated fund platform services.

    Meeting explosive growth of emerging funds in Hong Kong, Singapore and mainland China; OPIM and Solas are gearing up in infrastructure and cross-border expertise. Combined, they promote standardized corporate governance structure for funds managed across Asia.

    OPIM is committed to providing the best fund incubation services in both structuring fund vehicles, board composition, and ongoing risk and asset management. We recognize Solas's contributions to promoting corporate governance for emerging and established managers across Asia and expertise in both onshore and offshore regulation. These resonate with OPIM's values and standards. Their addition to the OPIM platform solutions will further alleviate managers' difficulties in structuring, governance and oversight so they can focus on performance. Given our collective expertise in best in class practices, we can provide tremendous value add to funds in Asia, especially China, as we have a team who is fluent in Mandarin with on the ground experience.

    Alvin Fan, CEO of OPIM commented, "With increasing demands from both regulators and allocators, board independence and corporate governance is not just a preference but now a pre-requisite. Funds are otherwise simply not marketable. Meanwhile, directorships that merely 'check the box' no longer exists, and independent directors must be both accountable and additive. Solas brings all of this to the table, and we couldn't be more thrilled to collaborate on new funds moving forward."

    Martin O'Regan, Managing Director of Solas opined, "Through technology, strict risk reporting processes, OPIM deploys analytics and strict reporting processes that are instrumental to board transparency which help directors maintain oversight in fund management without obstructing day-to-day activities with administrative burden. Providing both an independent member who also has both the technical and business acumen is vital."

    Solas is headed by Martin O'Regan, with over 20 years of experience with Deutsche, Citi, Intertrust, Apex and UBS at Singapore, Hong Kong, Ireland, Cayman, Bermuda and Dubai. Solas provides integrated strategic, technical, and administrative directorship services for funds, SPVs, and other investment vehicles across all major global fund jurisdictions.
