Andrew Miller has joined Linedata Services to head up and grow its Asian businesses.

"My key objective is to grow and expand Linedata's offering in Asia, which means introducing more of the Linedata product suite to existing clients and developing the market for products which have not previously been introduced in Asia," says Miller.

Previously, Miller was managing director of Xinhua Finance's Asia Pacific region overseeing sales, operations and technology development. "Linedata has developed a solid base in Asia through the acquisition of Beauchamp, which offers a front-to-back office portfolio management solution for the hedge fund community," he adds.

"Client demand is strong in Asia and Linedata determined it should be a key region for expansion and a major area of growth for the company over the next couple of years," explains Miller.

The key part of Linedata's strategy will be the introduction of additional core asset management software, as well as strong product support and services in the region, says Miller. He will also be hiring additional employees in the region, which already has a team of about 50.

"Having over 15 years of experience across the financial services sector, my knowledge of local markets, language skills and previous experience helping technology companies grow in Asia will all be useful assets as I support the expansion of the Linedata brand," says Miller.
