I am excited to join Broadridge to help our clients digitize their operations and drive the next phase of Broadridge’s business growth in Asia Pacific. APAC’s asset management industry growth is outpacing other regions across alternative and traditional sectors. Growth across private markets, hedge funds and family offices in particular makes this an exciting time to join a technology leader that is enabling digital transformation in these markets.

Wout brings extensive experience in regional leadership in the fintech and fund administration spaces in APAC. He joins Broadridge from BNY Mellon where he served as Regional Head of Alternative Investment Services and was responsible for building out the company’s footprint in Asia, including building out their capabilities and cross-selling other services. Wout has also held leadership positions at SS&C, Citibank, HSBC, and Citco.

Broadridge recently appointed two industry experts to its sales department in Europe, Guillaume Bunouf and Alvaro Del Pino Aguilera, with responsibilities in identifying growth opportunities in the continent.
