Eagle Investment Systems LLC, a leading provider of financial services technology and subsidiary of BNY Mellon, has opened its first representative office in China. John Legrand, managing director for Eagle in Asia-Pacific, has been named as the chief representative of Eagle’s new office in Beijing. The firm also has Asia-Pacific offices in Singapore and India.

"China is a key market for Eagle,” said Mr. Legrand. “Over the past four years, we have seen an increasing number of Chinese financial institutions place considerable attention on data management and increased efficiencies as central components of their risk management strategy. We therefore felt it was important to open an office in China to more closely align with Chinese institutions and provide them with the data management solutions they require.”

“Eagle has a world-class reputation for innovation,” said Steve Lackey, chairman of Asia-Pacific at Eagle’s parent company, BNY Mellon. “Eagle offers technology and services which address the required levels of transparency, scalability and security financial institutions around the world need more than ever today. We are delighted to be able to offer Chinese institutions access to Eagle’s local talent and expertise as well as products and services.”

Eagle has appointed two people to join the Beijing representative office. Tian Cheng has joined as head of business development and Yong Wang has been named as a product specialist. According to the announcement, Eagle expects to expand its team in Beijing over the next three years as the business grows in China.
