Onno Coenen (45 years old) joined the Check6 team as of 1st of November as the Commercial Director for Asia in Singapore. Onno and his wife moved from the Netherlands to Singapore in August 2018 and visited Singapore on a regular basis since 1997.

Over the last year, Onno has built his business network and is proficient in launching technology companies in the Singapore market.
Finding the right banking partners can make your life as a Family Officer a lot easier. Your custodians perform a number of services that you rely on, on a daily basis. For transactions, investment advice, compliance and reporting. The data the custodians create and distribute should be the foundation of your financial management, consolidated reporting and monitoring systems. The quality of that data is key.

Our customers spoke. We listened. They loved our consolidated reports, but the single question we kept getting was: 'and what about my real estate and other direct investments? ' It was a blind spot that no one else was covering. So, we went to work and developed the first ever wealth reporting Private Assets Module (PAM) to provide a total 360-degree overview of a client's assets: listed and non-listed. From your Private Equity funds to your real-estate holdings, from your yacht in the Med to your direct investments. With PAM if you own it, you see it.

There is plenty of information decrying corporate use of Excel for financial data. Even as far back as 2013 Forbes published an opinion piece with the ominous and provocative title: ‘Microsoft’s Excel Might Be the Most Dangerous Software on the Planet.’ The article pointed to perils including the errors that can occur from manual entry of data and mistaken calculations resulting from incorrect equations, which, distressingly, had cost some banks billions of dollars. For most companies, including Family Offices, however, Excel has represented one of the only available options for inputting and calculating financial information. Yet, as we move forward toward integrating that financial data, Excel’s risks and limitations appear all too frequently.
