ASI boosts Asia team with new recruits

Asia_globeAberdeen Standard Investments has bolstered its Asia team with the addition of four portfolio managers in Hong Kong and China. Edmund Goh, Asian fixed income investment manager, moved from Singapore to Shanghai. He joined the firm in 2011 with a focus on China sovereign bonds and credit investing. Aaron Ni has been recruited as an investment manager and is also based in Shanghai. He is responsible for covering onshore China credits and joined the fixed income team from Ping An Asset Management. Meanwhile, the Asian equities team has added Alec Jin to the ranks as an investment manager. Based in Hong Kong, he covers China and Hong Kong listed stocks. Jin joined Aberdeen Standard Investments from Standard Chartered Bank, where he was a director on the leveraged finance team. Stella Li has also been hired in Shanghai as an investment manager for China equities. She was previously with Macquarie Securities where she worked as an equity research analyst. Adam McCabe, head of Asian fixed income, welcomed the new recruits, and said: “China’s $12 trillion (€10.5 trillion) onshore bond market is now the third largest in the world. The demand for China bonds will only increase over time when the country is included in broader global market indices.” ©2018 funds global asia
