Swift to broaden Asia Pacific presence

Technology abstractSwift has established a new Asia Pacific corporate hub in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia, and Singapore. The financial messaging provider said it was creating a new corporate services centre in Kuala Lumpur, complementing similar centres of Swift in the US and Europe.
It will focus on services such as information technology development, qualification testing, support, finance, human resources and operational functions. Local hiring will start by the end of this year.
In Singapore, Swift already has a presence. Though, as part of the new corporate hub strategy, it intends to increase its existing global marketing presence in Singapore over the next three years. ©2012 funds europe
