ACS has had a presence in the country for some time now, but the creation of an official company marks a major step in the broker’s plans for international development.
“We are very proud to be the first major brokerage to have officially established an operation in China,” remarked Chris Leach, the Chairman and founder of ACS. “This business is built on the principle of offering our customers the highest levels of service possible, therefore having a Chinese registered company and office is essential. It is simply not an option for us to use GSAs or other representatives.
“Having people in China who know the local industry and can speak local languages is a must. So much of our expertise is based on the ability to communicate quickly and accurately with operators and clients all around the world – this can only be achieved with an official presence and I know our customers will recognise the benefits of working with a Chinese company, as opposed to just a representative in China.”
Beijing is the company’s second office to open in Asia this year, with ACS India opening for business in February. More openings are planned throughout the rest of 2012 and 2013.
