EFG Asset Management grows Hong Kong team
EFG Asset Management (EFGAM), the asset management arm of EFG International, has grown its Hong Kong team with two appointments; Nigel Sze as head of Asia and Harmen Overdijk as head of Investments.
Sze takes up his new position from that of deputy CEO of EFG Bank Asia and head of Private Banking in Hong Kong, roles he has held since 2009.
Overdijk is responsible for discretionary portfolio management services across the region. Overdijk joined EFG Bank in Hong Kong in 2008, and previously held senior positions at Fortis Bank and its affiliates.
The appointments follow the recent appointment of China equity fund manager, Mansfield Mok, who will be responsible for equity investing in China.
Jim Lee, CEO at EFGAM said: “We are delighted to welcome Nigel and Harmen to the team. Asia is attracting a lot of interest, reflecting its growing importance to the world economy. The changes we are making reflect our commitment to the region and our desire to extend our local investment capabilities. They will also enable us to better serve our clients – encompassing private banking clients of EFG Bank, as well as specialist segments served by EFGAM directly.”
