Hayfin Capital Management has expanded into Asia, opening an office in Singapore, its first in the region.

The office will better serve Hayfin’s substantial investor base in Asia-Pacific, as well as allowing it to explore “regionally focused investment offerings”, the company said.

The European alternative asset manager makes public and private credit investments across a diverse range of asset profiles and sub-sectors, including through its sector-specialist teams focused on shipping

The new office will be headed up by Glenn Clarke with a focus on building the firm’s Asian franchise.
