The office, located next to KL’s Sentral Station in the city’s Sentral district, is being headed up by Ben Lester, Brooklands Pensions’ business development manager for Asia. Lester, who joined Brooklands in February, had been resident in Hong Kong when he was hired, but has now moved to KL, the company said.
Over the coming weeks, Lester will be visiting Brooklands’ existing introducers in Malaysia and the region, and “will be in touch with our introducers and partners to provide them with his new contact details”, Brooklands added, in a statement announcing the new office.
The Kuala Lumpur facility is Brooklands’ fourth office. The company has trustee offices in London and Wellington, NZ, and an administrative office in Dubai.
Brooklands said the opening of its new KL office was “evidence of our continuing growth and commitment to providing the highest levels of service to advisers in the region”.
As reported last month, Brooklands recently agreed a deal with Capital Platforms, the Singapore-based platform provider recently launched by the original founders of Boston Direct Management, to have the Brooklands SIPP added to the suite of products Capital makes available to its adviser clients.
