Alter Domus hires Asia-Pacific head

Asia-Pacific headFund services firm Alter Domus has recruited Alexander Traub as its regional executive for Asia Pacific, based in Singapore. Traub joins from Augentius, a real estate and private equity fund services group, where he spent four years building up an Asian business. “As we expand our geographical footprint and our international network continues to grow, we have decided to move to a regional organisational structure,” said Laurent Vanderweyen, chief executive of Alter Domus. Traub will join the executive board at Alter Domus, which provides fund and corporate services to clients including infrastructure, real estate, private equity and private debt managers. “Private equity and real estate assets are expected to grow faster in Asia than in the rest of the world and this creates a great opportunity for continued growth for Alter Domus,” said Traub. ©2018 funds global asia
