Point72 Asset Management moved into a new office space in Singapore’s OUE Bayfront in Marina Bay on Monday. The 8,880 square foot space can seat up to 60 employees, doubling the capacity of the Firm’s previous Singapore office.
Marc Desmidt, Chief Executive Officer of Point72’s international business, said, “We are making a push to find, attract, and retain the industry’s brightest talent around the world, and we see Singapore as an important source of that talent.” Point72 opened its current Singapore office in 2009 with six employees. Today, it has 27 employees in Singapore, including nine who joined in 2016. The Firm has been in Asia since establishing its Hong Kong office in 2006.
Chris Coward, Head of Risk for Point72’s international business and the Head of the Singapore office said, “We are excited to be able to move into a space that can accommodate our growth in the region. We are committed to grow our presence in Singapore starting with the high-caliber talent we know are here.”
