Mahony has lived in Asia since 1981 in several careers, many focused on emerging-market finance, interrupted by a stint running a Latin American fund for Baring Asset Management. He built HSBC InvestmentsÆ global emerging-markets capacity in the early 1990s, and then did the same for Trust Company of the West and TCW Asia in the mid-1990s. Since 2000, he has been responsible for asset allocation for global institutional portfolios at Investment Manager Selection, a role he continues.
