Daisy Ho to head Fidelity International’s China operations

Daisy_HoFidelity International has appointed Daisy Ho as its president for China effective from January 1, 2020. The Shanghai-based position is newly-created as Fidelity prepares to fully transition from a private fund manager to an asset management company in China, the firm said in a statement on November 6, 2019. Over time, Ho will become the first general manager for the firm’s asset management company in China upon receiving the green light from the China Securities Regulatory Commission.

Since 2016, she has served as the managing director for Asia ex-Japan and the Middle East. The incoming president said: “I am thrilled and honoured to take on this role in China, having worked with key clients, regulators and officials on the ground over the course of many years.” She added: “The pace of market change in China is truly remarkable and I believe that, working closely with our partners, there is more we can achieve together.” ©2019 funds global asia
