The new office will be headed by Ms. Frida Tristán, who has 15 years of experience as an independent Financial Services and Risk Management consultant.

“Establishing a presence in Latin America will enhance the access and expertise of ComFin to deliver solutions for local commodity traders,” said Ms. Tristán. “With the ever-changing commodity environment, Panama puts ComFin in the centre of LATAM markets and set up for our continued growth plan”.

“The move to expand our presence in Latin America is part of our overall global strategy. We are committed to investing in geographies that add to our global business growth and customer convenience,” explains Gerald Neher, Managing Partner of ComFin Software. “It is an important event in the life of our company which shows our will to better meet our clients’ requirements as well as positioning ComFin as a major player in the region. The geographical distance, time-zone convenience, Spanish speaking local talent, ease of doing business, and operational efficiencies are some of the reasons which makes Panama a good fit for this new geographical expansion.”

ComFin Software is a private company with its global headquarters in Vienna, Austria.
