Mirae Asset Global Investments has announced that Olivier Mampouya joined the London sales team and Eldora Wong joins the Hong Kong sales team.
Mampouya will be working alongside head of UK Sales, Nic Jones, covering the UK client base, strengthening the distribution effort at a time when Mirae Asset’s Sicav range is blossoming in Europe. He will bring a wealth of experience to the UK team, having previously worked in business development at a number of asset managers including, Wellington Management, State Street, Schroders and Fidelity.
Wong will join the Hong Kong team as a Sales Director for Institutional Clients. She joins the Mirae sales team from Robeco where she worked in Institutional Business Development. Prior to that, she worked at Invesco, RCM and started her Business Development career at HSBC Investments where she was a manager in their Institutional Client Investment Services Department.
The two new hires follow on from the appointment of Sander Van Ouwerkerk as head of Benelux and Nordic sales in February 2015. AUM in the region has grown by a substantial amount in Q1. Further expansion is planned this year, with new hires likely in both Europe and globally.
The latest additions to the sales team will help the team by targeting a wide range of institutional, wealth management, fund of funds and private bank clients. The additions come after an extremely positive start to 2015 for AUM growth in Mirae Asset’s core Luxembourg Sicav range, built off the back of strong outperformance and investor understanding of Mirae’s differentiated, bottom up, sector driven investment approach.
Ashley Dale, CMO and head of International Business Development, at Mirae Asset said: “Investments in our core Sicav range continue to grow at a substantial rate. The first quarter of 2015 has seen significant inflows of capital and we are aiming to build on this trend through the hire of two exceptional Sales Directors. Both Olivier and Eldora have distinguished track records in Business Development and have brought a wealth of experience to their respective teams.”
