Oct 28, 2018

HONG KONG (October 29, 2018) – Barings, one of the world’s leading financial services firms, announced today the appointment of Mandy Lui to the role of Head of Wealth/ Retail Distribution, Greater China and Southeast Asia. In her new role, she is responsible for managing sales, business development and client service for Wealth and Retail distribution across Greater China and Southeast Asia.  Lui is based in Hong Kong and reports to Jon Millin, Head of Asia Pacific (ex-Japan) Distribution.

 

“Barings is dedicated to delivering exceptional service and innovative solutions to our clients in the Asia-Pacific region, and Mandy’s addition to the Barings team reinforces that commitment and aligns with our long-term growth strategy,” said Millin. “I am confident that Mandy and our well-established team will help strengthen and grow our client relationships across wealth/ retail channels in the region.” 

 

Lui joins Barings from BNP Paribas Asset Management where she was the Head of Wholesale Distribution, China, Hong Kong and Singapore. Prior to this, she held positions at Schroder Investment Management (Hong Kong) Limited and Russell Investments.

 

Barings has been adding resources in the Asia Pacific region as part of its long-term growth strategy. In August, Duncan Robertson, Global Head of Distribution and Marketing assumed an expanded role as Head of Asia Pacific. The firm is also introducing two High Yield investment strategies to the Hong Kong market, offering its clients in Asia with access to the firm’s global investment platform.

 

“Barings’ Asia Pacific business is already a strong contributor to the firm’s global growth with 33%* of external assets under management originating from the region. We believe it could represent an even more meaningful component of our asset base and have made strategic hires to support the growth of Barings’ global investment platform and retail/ wealth business,” said Robertson.
