The Dutch pension asset manager's Asia Pacific head of real estate says his team has just had one of its busiest years ever and that 2021 is looking similarly promising.
Taylor and Noh both start work in July, reporting to Tim Throsby, CEO for Citadel Asia.
Taylor will serve as senior managing director and head of principal investments for Asia and Europe. He has been at Credit Suisse since 1999, with stints in London and Tokyo. He also served as managing director of prop trading in Europe at CSFB and served on the risk arbitrage desk in Europe for Goldman Sachs.
Earlier this month the firm announced it would hire David Noh from Merrill Lynch as head of Asian merchant banking. He had previously been MerrillÆs head of corporate principal investments for the Pacific Rim. Noh also co-founded MerrillÆs distressed debt group in Hong Kong, and has worked at Goldman Sachs in Hong Kong and Morgan Stanley in Korea. He started his career at Ernst & Young.
These moves coincide with two other hires in Europe: Patrick Edsparr has left JPMorgan Chase to serve as CEO for Citadel Europe and head of global fixed income, while Moore CapitalÆs Kaveh Alamouti left to serve as CitadelÆs head of global macro investments.
Regional institutions’ investment managers outperformed their external peers, underlining that they are just as vital as modern asset allocation strategies.
