ASIA - Asia investment specialists, Atlantis Investment Management, has appointed James Alexander from Nomura International to spearhead its Asian fund sales and marketing internationally.
At Nomura he created and developed Nomura's UK customer base for Asian equity sales. Before that he was a director and head of equity sales at BZW's joint venture in Thailand. Alexander has also worked for WI Carr (Far East) in Hong Kong and Morgan Grenfell Asset Management.
Commenting on the appointment, Peter Irving, chief executive of Atlantis, said: “[James] brings with him exceptional experience in our key markets which is very rare.
Alexander’s appointment follows the launch of the Atlantis China Fund in March. Atlantis has seen funds under management jump by US$200m to US$850m since the end of January and expects this trend to continue as Asian markets rally.
Investors are finally realising that investing in Asia is paying dividends, added Irving.
