Singapore, 26 July 2019
Crossbridge Capital (“Crossbridge”), the leading independent global wealth manager with over US$4.5 billion under advisement, today announced it is partnering with Globlex Securities (“Globlex”), a Thailand-based securities broker to help them launch the CONNECT by Globlex robo-advisory service, and bring customised and actively managed investment portfolios to Thai accredited investors. Effectively combining personalised advice, the latest technology and outstanding research, CONNECT by Globlex will allow Thailand-based investors to take control of their investment portfolios and maximise their returns.
For a securities broker offering traditional brokerage and trading services, the integration of CONNECT by Globlex will add premier digital wealth management to Globlex’s suite of product offerings, enabling it to deepen relationships with its existing customers and to reach a broader client base cost-effectively. Through CONNECT, Globlex will be able to offer rigorously constructed, goals-based investment portfolios to suit investment objectives and risk appetites, diversified across twelve global asset classes.
“The decision to partner with Crossbridge was based on their superior ability to bring a seamless digital wealth management experience, the strength of their technology and their investment expertise. There is huge growth potential in the wealth management space in Thailand, with customers increasingly looking for the next-generation digital solution to manage their wealth efficiently, and CONNECT by Globlex will create a truly differentiated offering from our competitors,” said Thanapisal Koohapremkit, Chief Executive Officer of Globlex Securities.
“We are thrilled by this new partnership as we begin to roll out the CONNECT platform beyond Singapore. We look forward to working together with Globlex to help them better serve their clients and to further shape the digital wealth management industry in Thailand,” said Charlie O’Flaherty, Partner and Head of Digital Strategy and Distribution, at Crossbridge Capital.
The decision to partner with Globlex follows the success of CONNECT by Crossbridge; Singapore’s first robo-adviser that launched in late 2016. CONNECT by Crossbridge was developed in collaboration with top-tier industry providers to bring customised, actively managed, investment portfolios to accredited investors. Its goals-based investment portfolios give clients a personalised asset allocation to suit their risk profiles and objectives.
Crossbridge Capital recently announced significant updates to its CONNECT by Crossbridge digital platform, which further enriched the premium customer experience for accredited investors like synchronisation to Singapore’s MyInfo, enhanced User Experience and 100% in-house technology development.
