Managing Director, Asia Pacific
Jo has been based in Asia for 16 years, predominately in Hong Kong and complemented by a couple of years spent in Singapore. She has held a number of senior regional management positions successfully leading sales, business development, marketing and client relationship management divisions and has both built and managed large and successful regionally located teams.
Jo was expatriated to Hong Kong, with Morgan Stanley, in early 1997 and has worked for a number of global institutions during her tenure. Her experience - across the service intermediary, buy and sale side business environments - has led her to obtain a meaningful network of senior level contacts throughout the region.
Her time spent at HSBC Securities Services, with a service intermediary focus, gave her access to a deep pool of regionally based investors which she then built upon during her role as Asia ex Japan head of sales and product specialist at Deutsche Asset Management for their full suite of alternative investment products.
Jo enjoys a solid industry reputation and is a member of the Alternative Investment Management Association (AIMA) Executive Committee and was recently voted "Asia's most influential women in the alternative sector" and also one of "The 25 most influential people in Asian hedge funds" both by the industry leading AsianInvestor magazine.
