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.
Commenting on the appointment, Richard Jones, head of equity research for Asia says: "Weimin
has excellent knowledge of the individual stocks in Taiwan as well as a good macroeconomic overview. In addition, his knowledge of regional semi-conductors and downstream technology
sectors will also add significantly to our overall coverage and compliment our existing team in
Taipei. His appointment is the latest in a substantial build plan that we have for our equity markets
operations in Taiwan, and we expect to be making further hires in the future."
Also joining the Taipei team, from Nomura Securities, are Chris Hsieh, 31, and Jessica Chang, 30, who will be covering the semi-conductor sector. Hsieh spent four years as a senior analyst with Nomura and was previously with Capital Securities. Prior to Nomura, Chang worked for Citibank in Taipei for four years. Nicholas Teo, 32, from Grand Cathay Securities Corporation in Taipei, also joins to cover downstream technology stocks.
