SINGAPORE – 20 Apr, 2017 – Alliance FX Capital (AFXC) has consummated a commercial relationship with Pennington Fund (Management, Advisory, Funds, and Listing Service) of Labuan, Malaysia. We have entered into this arrangement to strengthen our capabilities in launching a new set of Asian Specialty Funds to trade as ETFs with Singapore equity market listings. Pennington is one of a few consultancy’s and transfer agents with unique funds transfer and structuring capabilities. As one of the most experienced ETF listing and structuring consultancies in Asia, Pennington possesses the banking relationships that can support these complex transactions.
As our appointed transfer agent, Pennington Fund has demonstrated to AFXC the expertise that these specialized fields require.
Chief Executive Officer, Gordon Roth said, “We look forward to having Pennington as a transfer agent that will increase our efficiency in handling volume customer funds bank clearance as well as the intricate management of the flow of funds that our ETFs business will require from us as a product underwriter.
