Russell Investments hires new president for China business
Ying Tan will oversee the firm’s strategic growth initiatives in China
LONDON, February 13, 2019 — Global asset manager Russell Investments has hired Ying Tan as President and General Manager for Russell Investments Management (Shanghai). Ying, who is now responsible for building upon the firm’s long-standing work in China, brings significant industry experience to this role with more than 20 years of proven success in wealth management, investment research and trading.
Based in Russell Investments’ Shanghai office, Ying leads the local team of professionals and reports directly to Chief Executive, Asia-Pacific Pete Gunning.
“I am thrilled that Ying has joined Russell Investments. She has a deep understanding of the Chinese marketplace and will help us build upon our position as a leading multi-manager fund-of-fund provider in the region,” said Gunning.
Gunning added that Russell Investments’ global leadership in manager research (which includes monitoring more than 13,600 investments products as of 12/31/2018) and investment management capabilities are highly recognized and valued in China. The firm provides multi-asset, multi-manager solutions to both Chinese institutional clients seeking exposure to overseas assets and foreign investors seeking exposure to onshore Chinese equities (A-shares) and fixed-income securities.
In 2011, Russell Investments was part of an affiliation that launched the first manager-of-managers solution in China. Two years ago, Russell Investments signed a landmark agreement to provide support on the design of China Asset Management Co., Ltd. (China AMC) domestic fund-of-funds investment products, including guidance on factor exposures and diversification techniques.
Ying’s new role at Russell Investments builds on an impressive career in the asset management industry. Prior to joining the firm, she spent more than a decade with Mercer, where she served as a Principal in the firm’s Asian manager research capability and later as the head of the firm’s investment business in China. She was instrumental in helping build Mercer’s investment advisory business in China.
Prior to joining Mercer, Ying was a senior analyst at the Treasury Office of Children’s Medical Center Corporation in Boston. Earlier in her career, Ying was a fixed income analyst with Xinhua Finance and a foreign exchange trader with the Bank of Tokyo Mitsubishi.
Ying holds a bachelor’s degree in International Finance from Fudan University and master’s degree in International Economics and Finance from Brandeis University.
