London-based asset manager M&G has named former Schroders executive Amy Cho as head of Asia Pacific and CEO of its Singapore business.
She succeeds Loretta Ng, who is leaving the firm.
Cho was most recently Hong Kong CEO and Apac deputy head at Schroders, a firm she joined in 2018. She has also worked for Pictet Asset Management, First State Investments, HSBC Asset Management and Citibank in a number of senior roles.
According to M&G, the appointment is seen as a sign of the firm’s commitment to the region.
“Asia is central to our growth ambitions, and we have made strong progress during this year in strengthening our distribution capabilities and broadening our licensing arrangements, particularly in our focus markets of Japan, Korea, Taiwan, Singapore and Hong Kong,” said Neal Brooks, M&G global head of product & distribution.
