As we announced in our communication to you in November last year, Orangefield was acquired by investor group Baring Private Equity Asia. They also acquired Vistra Group, a former competitor, and we have been in the process of merging our two companies to form a larger, stronger company with a broader service offering and expanded global reach.
As we will operate as one company, we have decided we should share one name. That is why after much consideration, we have chosen to adopt the Vistra brand as our own. Within the next months all Orangefield offices and channels will be rebranded to Vistra. In Singapore, this rebranding will happen on June 20th.
We are very proud of the Orangefield brand that we have built over the years. However, we are convinced that uniting under a single brand will bring both us and you, as our client, more simplicity and a stronger foundation. In combination with Vistra we are one of the top 3 players in the corporate services market globally, with over 2,200 staff across 58 locations. This means we can offer you an even better proposition, a larger global footprint, and an enhanced service offering. We are continuing to build a stronger position in the areas of corporate and private client services, alternative investments and international expansion services and will further strengthen our geographic presence in existing and emerging markets.
You will notice that the branding in our communications will change, as will our email addresses. The new email format is email@example.com, however emails sent to the existing Orangefield email addresses will continue to be delivered following the rebranding.
Combining our enhanced resources under the same roof
As part of the integration our Singapore offices will be moving to unite our enhanced service teams under the same roof. This will support better alignment of our stronger and more comprehensive service with your needs. As of 20 June 2016, our office will be relocated to 1 Raffles Place, #13-01 , One Raffles Place, Singapore, 048616, with a second office for the Corporate team at 60 Paya Lebar Road, #08-43, Paya Lebar Square, Singapore 409051. Our existing telephone numbers will remain the same for some time, with new ones being phased in gradually.
The client companies that currently are using our office as registered office will also be moved to the new address with effect on 20 June 2016. Board resolutions effecting the change will be sent to you for further processing shortly by your respective team members.
New identity, same values, more comprehensive service
The name will change, but our service values will not. We will remain the dedicated, personal, and flexible service provider you have grown accustomed to. What will change is that you will be supported by an even larger international team, and you will have access to a wider range of services. In merging with Vistra we add 24 service locations, including offices in Ireland, Switzerland, and Taiwan. Furthermore, Vistra has extensive experience especially with corporate and private client services and company formation, which will enrich and complement our own existing offering.
We will provide you with the same level of support and dedicated service as before, enhanced by the additional resources and geographic coverage that the combined Orangefield / Vistra group can deliver.
