Tarun Nagpal, founder, and CEO at S64, said: “David is an excellent addition to the team at S64, which continues to grow from strength to strength. As the business expands at pace in APAC, David will establish our critical presence in Australia and New Zealand and bring our existing offering to a new level. His invaluable experience and skillset will be an asset as we continue to offer our clients industry-leading alternative platforms and solutions. Australia and New Zealand are strategic markets for S64 where we expect to significantly bolster our presence over the coming months”
Hallifax added: “I am delighted to be joining S64 as the business embarks on an exciting period of global growth. We are seeing increasing interest in the private markets arena in Australia and New Zealand and S64 is well-positioned to tap into these opportunities with tailored local solutions. I look forward to working with colleagues to harness S64’s unparalleled global connectivity and technology in these exciting markets.”
With the demand for private markets products increasing across Europe and APAC, Hallifax’s appointment is the most recent in a string of key hires.
It comes after Hiroaki Ohhigashi’s appointment as head of Japan in June 2023 and is another indication of S64’s ambition to pioneer solutions to take advantage of the numerous opportunities available in APAC.
