Maples Fund Services Expands Hong Kong Office
Maples Fund Services, a leading independent global fund services provider and a division of MaplesFS, has expanded its Hong Kong team with the hire of Kit Pau as Vice President. The addition to the Hong Kong team is driven by increased market share of new launches in private equity and hedge funds, conversions from other service providers, and organic growth from existing fund manager clients.
In his new role, Kit will assume operational responsibility for the fund accounting and investor services teams in Hong Kong and will complement the dedicated client service team structure. Maples Fund Services provides tailored and flexible solutions to both private equity and hedge fund managers throughout the region.
Eastern Fong, Regional Head of Fund Services for Asia, commented, “Kit brings a wealth of experience in private equity and hedge fund administration to our growing operations. His superior technological and professional expertise will help us continue to expand as a leading player in Asia.”
Kit previously worked at PricewaterhouseCoopers Hong Kong, where he was a founding member of the private equity and real estate fund industry specialised group. He has more than 14 years of experience providing advisory and assurance services, including internal controls, financial reporting, administration and compliance for various types of private equity, hedge funds, venture capital, REITs and privately held real estate funds. Kit received a Fellowship from the Association of Chartered Certified Accountants and is a member of the Hong Kong Institute of Certified Public Accountants.
