Aberdeen Standard hires in Asia push

Aberdeen Standard Investments has expanded its Asian investment team with four portfolio managers joining in Shanghai and Hong Kong, further bolstering its China fixed income and equities expertise.

The asset manager said the new hires underline its strategic focus in China.

Edmund Goh, Asian fixed income investment manager, has relocated from Singapore to Shanghai. He has been with the firm since 2011, focusing on China sovereign bonds and credit investing, and is part of the team managing ASI’s regional fixed income portfolios.

Also on the fixed income side, Aaron Ni has joined the team in Shanghai as investment manager, responsible for covering onshore China credits. Aaron came to the Asian fixed income team from Ping An Asset Management, where he specialised in credit analysis.

Alec Jin has been appointed an investment manager on the Asian equities team. Based in Hong Kong, he covers China and Hong Kong listed stocks. He was most recently a director on the leveraged finance team at Standard Chartered Bank.

Stella Li has started in Shanghai as an investment manager for China equities. Previously with Macquarie Securities as an equity research analyst, she will deepen the team’s research into the Chinese equities universe.

Commenting on the hires, Adam McCabe, head of Asian fixed income at ASI, said: “The expansion of our footprint on the ground in China is an important milestone; we look forward to connecting investors near and far with deeper insights and wider opportunities in onshore bonds.”
