The French fund house has named its first salesperson in the region dedicated to sovereign institutions, as it continues to focus more on specific client segments.
Axa Investment Managers has hired a new director of private banking coverage for Asia as part of a bid to boost its coverage of the segment. More hires are expected as the firm grows its sales and marketing team.
The firm has registered 13 retail funds and added a client service executive in Singapore, in addition to putting more retail products in Hong Kong. Taiwan is also a major focus.
The firm is transferring Ying Du to Beijing after receiving its rep office licence last week, says global distribution head Jon Bailie.
Jean-Luc Eyssautier has left Axa Investment Managers to join Martin Currie Investment Management as Asia sales director.
Terence Lam will join from BNP Paribas Investment Partners to take up the post.
