ASIA/NETHERLANDS - Robeco has appointed Tony Edwards as chief executive officer of its Asia Pacific business.
His appointment, which is effective from 1 September, follows the retirement of Frances Chang, CEO Greater China and South East Asia.
Robeco said Edwards will be responsible expanding its business across the whole region in order to fit the company's broader growth plan in Asia Pacific. He will be based in Hong Kong.
Prior to joining Robeco, he was head of Asia Pacific (ex-Japan) at Neuberger Berman. He previously spent ten years at AllianceBernstein, where he served as a senior portfolio manager for over five years in Asia.
Management board member Hester Borrie said: "Asia is key to the company's development and we will continue to commit to our growth in this region. I am delighted to welcome Tony to Robeco and lead the firm to the next growth phase in Asia.
"In the meantime, we are grateful for Frances' contribution and leadership", Hester Borrie added. "Thanks to her efforts, Robeco has sucessfully built up a strong foundation for our business expansion in Greater China and South East Asia. We respect her decision and extend our best wishes to her in the future."
Edwards added: "Asia is an important engine for global growth. Robeco, with its strong regional network and proven global capabilities, is well positioned to provide Asian investors with the right investment solutions."
Edwards' appointment is subject to Securities and Futures Commission (SFC) approval.
