The life insurer has promoted Fanda Ho to replace Ben Rudd, who recently moved to a new internal role.
Ben Rudd has switched posts after four years as chief investment officer for the life insurer's Hong Kong business, and further changes are coming.
The Covid-19 pandemic has brought investing opportunities in credit markets amid turbulence, said CIOs from AIA, Prudential Asia and Ping An at an AsianInvestor event.
Covid-19 has added new dimensions to infrastructure investments, say the two asset owners, while Aware Super observes that deal complexity has increased.
The two insurers say they are heavily scrutinising their external partners as they eye investing opportunities in high yield, alternative assets and ESG, in a webinar hosted by AsianInvestor.
The insurer made the appointment after the previous incumbent went on sabbatical, said a spokeswoman. It is now seeking a new head of investment strategy.
