PDL International expands into Middle East and Asia

RELATED TOPICS​

PDL International, a provider of investment services to both institutional and retail clients, has expanded its distribution activity to the Middle East and Asia. According to PDL, high levels of wealth as a result of greater economic growth in these regions have created demand from high net worth individuals and institutional investors for alternative investments.
 

Sven Kuhlbrodt (pictured), Managing Director of PDL International, says: “Without doubt, the Middle East and Asia represents a real growth opportunity for PDL International. Recent research suggests total assets under management in the Middle East alone could total $4 trillion. We are witnessing a growing appetite amongst investors for assets whose performance is not dictated by financial markets. A key part of our strategy is to meet the rising demand for these products.
 
“All of our products boast attractive, consistent returns, low or no correlation to capital markets and low volatility. We’ve already had really positive feedback from potential investors in these regions, and are looking forward to spending more time working in these exciting economies.”
 
Among the products PDL International will be distributing in the Middle East and Asia are:
An innovative range of UCITS-compliant alternative funds from Salus Alpha;
Traded Endowment Policies, originating from UK With Profits life insurance policies traded onto the secondary market;
The Cascade Portfolio, a diversified portfolio of life settlements policies.*
 
As part of this expansion, PDL International has appointed Keith Campbell Golding as Chief Representative for Middle East and Asia. Campbell Golding will market and distribute PDL International’s product range to institutional customers across the Middle East and Asia.
 
Keith has an extensive background in financial markets, with over 30 years in investment banking and in stockbroking. He established one of the first holistic wealth management companies, two asset management companies for European banks, and has written extensively on the markets.
 
He has also worked as a main board director as well as running proprietary trading desks, managing fixed income and currency funds and developing key investment strategies for a global client base. His sales experience spans Europe, the Middle East, South America and Asia.
 
Sven Kuhlbrodt says: “With Keith as PDL International’s Chief Representative in these markets, we have added a hugely experienced colleague who will be instrumental in shaping and executing our new activities in what is a very important region for us.’’
