Quantuma has announced that it is expanding its international footprint into Asia with the launch of a new team based in Singapore.
Quantuma’s entry into the Asia-Pacific region follows a series of recent international office openings in key offshore financial centres, including Dubai, Cayman Islands, Mauritius, Poland, Cyprus, and most recently British Virgin Islands (BVI).
The firm said its Singapore team will offer cross-border, large and complex restructuring, and insolvency services, in addition to forensic accounting. With “significant” demand for these services locally, the team is expected to grow to a headcount of 10 in the coming months.
According to the firm, the team will be led by managing director, Luke Furler, who will also serve as Quantuma’s head of Asia. Furler has spent almost 10 years in Singapore, developing a highly sought-after expertise in cross-border insolvencies involving multi-jurisdictional litigation and asset recoveries.
He specialises in large and complex restructuring engagements and boasts considerable experience in managing global mandates for clients throughout the Asia-Pacific region.
Quantuma added that Furler will be supported by managing director, Ellyn Tan, who joins the team after spending almost seven years at FTI Consulting. Tan has 15 years’ experience specialising in insolvency, restructuring and turnaround, as well as investigations and forensic accounting.
Furler and Tan will be responsible for growing Quantuma’s presence in Asia, as well as providing the foundations for further expansion into the region.
Furler said: “I am delighted to have joined Quantuma at such a pivotal time. There is already a very strong demand for our services across the APAC region from clients who value our independence and local and international network.
“With a well-established offshore footprint in Europe, the Caribbean, Africa, the Middle East, and now the Far East, Quantuma is very well positioned to provide integrated and agile advisory services to serve the needs of professional advisors, lenders and their clients in the region.”
