IPSA Opens Office in Dubai International Financial Centre

Dubai, UAE – 09 September 2013 - IPSA International, Inc., an international risk advisory firm, has opened an office in Dubai. Opening in Dubai is part of the firm’s strategic expansion initiative to have client-facing offices in major financial centres to better serve the specific geographic needs and challenges of its clients.

Dubai is a key financial centre serving as a major hub between the West and the East. Given the increasing complexities of the global financial system, the world becoming smaller, combined with an obvious appetite from our client base, launching in Dubai was an easy decision to make,” said Dan Wachtler, IPSA’s President & CEO.

IPSA’s office is strategically located within the Dubai International Financial Centre (DIFC), a recognized financial and business hub connecting the region’s emerging markets with the markets of Europe, Asia and the Americas. The office will be directed by Kenneth (Kim) Marsh, who has been a member of IPSA’s Senior Management team since 2002 and brings over 25 years of international investigative experience. As Executive Vice President International Operations, Mr. Marsh is tasked with executing the firm’s international growth strategy with specific emphasis on international due diligence services, in addition to managing the Canadian and London operations he already oversees.

Opening an office in Dubai is another critical step for IPSA’s globalization strategy. Securing a presence in the region’s financial hub has coincided nicely with client requests for enquiries and investigations in the region,” commented Kim Marsh. 

IPSA International, Inc., has a 20 year history of successfully completing complex multi-jurisdictional engagements in the areas of anti-money laundering, anti-bribery and corruption, investigative due diligence and litigation support. IPSA International has offices in the U.S., U.K., Dubai and Canada, resources in over 100 countries and research capabilities in 20 languages.
