Matteo Germano, global head of multi-asset investments at Pioneer Investments, discusses how to identify investing risks driving returns and combine exposure to them in unique ways.
Having won a master agent licence in Taiwan, Pioneer Investments has since last week been able to sell funds directly to distributors.
Pioneer Investments has just 3% of its assets sourced from Asia, but is aiming to improve this, says senior vice-president Sam Wardwell, who takes note of Asian interest in the US.
Pioneer Investments bolsters its business development and sales team in Asia-Pacific, and is also likely to seek to hire some Asian debt specialists to be based in London.
The asset manager's regional head, Jack Lin, is busy finding new staff and looking to set up distribution partnerships across several countries.
Jack Lin is the new head of Asia and the Middle East for Pioneer Investments, a unit of UniCredit. He says he will focus on increasing institutional business in the region.
