Based in the Singapore office, Yuan Yuan Woo, Executive Director, and Nithya Camoens, Director, will be key to drive new business, foster relationship building and support the underlying efforts of the company as it continues to expand and grow in Asia.
“We are developing an experienced and highly qualified team by adding premium resources to help us manage our growing client base and, most importantly, to underscore our continued commitment to providing excellent client service,” says Wendy Sim, Managing Director, ZEDRA Singapore.

She is also a qualified Trust and Estate Practitioner with STEP.
“Yuan Yuan has spent almost 20 years carefully establishing and maintaining trust structures with Asian families that has required a great deal of attention to detail and commitment as family dynamics change and evolve,” continues Wendy. “She began her career in tax services for PwC, before moving to a number of private banks including Citibank, DBS and UBS where she advised private clients on succession and estate planning matters.
“Yuan Yuan Woo comes to ZEDRA with a serious skillset in client management and client focus. She has the adaptability, resourcefulness and marketplace knowledge required to help grow the Singapore office and our client business in Asia,” says Niels Nielsen, ZEDRA CEO.
