Who uses your services and expertise?

We serve a broad range of clients ranging from medium-sized German sourcing companies to large Asian asset managers.


What are crucial factors for a successful venture into the Asian market?

Hong Kong is consistently ranked amongst the best cities worldwide in terms of “ease of doing business”. Setting up a local company and expanding from here to the nearby markets is thus a straightforward exercise. The proximity to mainland China and the ASEAN countries allows our clients’ operations to be scaled up quickly and substantially.
