SINGAPORE- Janus Capital Group Inc has opened an office in Singapore to target the institutional and wealth management markets in South East Asia.
The office will be managed by Benjamin Chang, co-head of Janus Capital’s Asia Pacific ex Japan region and chief executive of Janus Capital Singapore Pte Limited.
Erich Gerth, chief executive officer of Janus Capital International Limited, said the development reflected the strong momentum from Singapore and South East Asia-based investors in its US and global fundamental and mathematical investment strategies.
He added that Singapore was a key market for the company’s expansion plans.
In February 2007 Global Pensions reported that Janus Capital confirmed it would open an office in Australia to target institutional investors in Australasia.
