Ian Strudwick Joins Broadridge as Its New GM and Head of Asia-Pacific

Broadridge Financial Solutions, Inc. (NYSE:BR) announced that Ian Strudwick will join the organisation as its new Head of Asia-Pacific, effective immediately.

Recently announced in a press release shared with Finance Magnates, Ian Strudwick, a veteran with more than twenty-three years of experience in finance and technology, has been named by Broadridge Financial Solutions, a global Fintech leader, as its new General Manager and Head of Asia-Pacific.

Strudwick brings extensive experience in the financial services and the technology sector. He spent around sixteen years in global and regional leadership roles across capital markets, trade finance and business services. Additionally, this announcement is part of the fintech’s strategy to take advantage of opportunities for strong business growth.

Turning Back the Vocational Clock

Prior to Broadridge’s announcement, TD Securities recruited Strudwick as its MD and Global Head of Operations and Business Services APAC. For close to three years, he fulfilled his duties in Singapore.

Earlier to his experience at TD Securities, NatWest Markets secured his services for the position of Head of Transaction Management & Operations APAC from late 2015 to August 2018.

Before that, Strudwick spent most of his career with RBS, amounting to almost sixteen years. During his time, he received six promotions, from his starting position entitled Exotic Rates Middle Office. After a couple of management posts, he was named Global Head of Exotic & Structured Credit Middle Offices in London in 2006. Then after almost five years, he relocated to Singapore and became the Head of Structured & Exotic and Credit & Fixed Income Operations in APAC. Shortly after, he received two further promotions peaking as its Head of Transaction Management Group (TMG) in APAC.

Strudwick’s career began at Greenwich Natwest in October 1997 in the Rates Middle Office in London, UK.

Enhancing the APAC Leadership Bench

Strudwick will report to Samir Pandiri, President of Broadridge International and navigate Broadridge’s expansion strategies in Asia. Moreover, he will drive the company’s sustained growth in key APAC markets of Singapore, Hong Kong, Australia and Japan. The appointment builds on the recent acquisition of David Ingleson as its Chief Operating Officer for APAC earlier this year. The new hire will enhance the APAC leadership as the company continues to support APAC clients to grow their operations.

Samir Pandiri, the President of Broadridge International, said: “Ian joins at a transformational time for our clients in the region. They will benefit from his deep cross-market industry expertise, as Broadridge supports them in the adoption and application of next-generation technologies. We are delighted to have him on board as we continue our organic and acquisitive growth path both in Asia and globally.”

“Broadridge is a global firm at the forefront of innovative next-generation technologies and, as such, very well-positioned to support companies at a time when we are seeing an evolutionary leap in the speed of business technology adoption. I am excited to build on the customer-centric culture and lead the high-quality teams in Asia to help clients meet the moment by optimising operations and unlocking growth through Broadridge’s leading industry solutions,” said Strudwick.
