Global FinTech firm Broadridge has appointed a new chief operating officer (COO) for APAC, tapping one of BNY Mellon’s leaders of its Eagle Investment Systems in the region.
David Ingleson joins after 16 years with BNY Mellon where he was most recently head of APAC for the Eagle Investment Services business. Prior to the banking group, Ingleson also held roles with National Australia Bank (NAB) and HSBC.
Broadridge said Ingleson will oversee regional implementation strategies for Broadridge, direct operations and support of capital markets clients in the region and focus on investing in Broadridge’s local market expertise and capabilities.
He will report to fellow BNY Mellon alumni Samir Pandiri, president of Broadridge International.
“Clients are facing an extraordinarily complex operating environment and David’s deep industry and regional knowledge are key assets as Broadridge helps clients adopt and apply next-generation technologies to drive business,” said Pandiri. “We are very excited to have David join Broadridge as we expand our regional capabilities and we look forward to his leadership in driving client success and team building.”
In October last year, Broadridge created a capital markets business to combine its trading and post-trade technology solutions. The new capital markets unit sits within its Global Technology and Operations (GTO) division.
Elsewhere, the FinTech provider has been active at the start of 2021, collaborating with SLIB, a French-based vendor of electronic voting and security services, to offer a joint, cross-border proxy voting solution for Shareholder Rights Directive II (SRD II) compliance, covering European shareholder meetings.
Meanwhile, just last week, the group launched Broadridge Proxy Policies & Insights (PPI) Data, providing an open data-feed of proxy voting information and analytics.
