CoSec is delighted to announce that we have been acquired by leading international corporate services provider Acclime in a strategic move by both companies to expand operations internationally.
Acclime has a strong and growing presence in nine key Asian jurisdictions including Cambodia, China, Hong Kong, Indonesia, Malaysia, Philippines, Singapore, Thailand, and Vietnam. Now, with the addition of CoSec, Acclime’s network extends into Australia, the United States of America, and the United Kingdom.
This is a new chapter for all of us and we are excited to be part of a large international team.
CoSec’s clients will continue to receive the same dedicated service from the same expert team, with access to deeper resources and regional experts who can help navigate complex Asian markets.
Acclime shares many of our values and this was an important factor in our decision to join their group of companies. Like us, they go the extra mile and are absolutely committed to creating genuine, collaborative partnerships with clients seeking to expand in new markets. We also both understand that our inherent value is our people.
Australia is a trading nation and a high-growth destination for foreign investment. Twelve of its 15 largest markets are in Asia and Oceania, showing how integrated Australia’s economy is with its Asian neighbours. Having a strong footprint in Australia – an integral and desirable market in the Asia-Pacific region – is critical to our expansion plan. CoSec fits perfectly with what we do at Acclime – assisting clients to expand and succeed in whichever Asian market they choose to enter and operate within.
Martin Crawford, Co-founder and CEO of Acclime.
This is the logical next step for CoSec and presents a strategic opportunity to be part of a larger international team with established resources and networks across Acclime’s established Asian portfolio. We are excited at the opportunities that lay ahead and the value we can deliver to Acclime’s clients through our presence and deep understanding of the Australian, US and UK markets.
Blair Lucas, Co-founder and CEO of CoSec, now Acclime Partner.
Each market has its own complex corporate and compliance regimes which are difficult to navigate for companies who are looking to expand into new regions. As a result of this strategic integration, our clients can benefit from a wider spectrum of professional services and gain access to regional experts to help them navigate complex emerging Asian markets.
Paul Dixon, Co-founder and CFO of CoSec, now Acclime Partner.
CoSec will now operate under the Acclime brand. Our office addresses and phone numbers will remain the same, however please note there has been changes to our email addresses as we have transitioned to Acclime.
We are sincerely thankful to our clients and colleagues for your continued support and we look forward to working with you in the year ahead.
