Schroders expands multi-asset team in Asia

Schroders has announced the senior appointment of Jason Yu as head of Multi-Asset Product, North Asia.

Based in Hong Kong, Yu will focus on supporting the growth of Schroders’ Multi-Asset business in North Asia, and delivering world-class outcome-based solutions to clients in the region.

Yu joins Schroders in June 2017, reporting to Garth Taljard, head of Multi-Asset Management. His responsibilities include Hong Kong, China, Taiwan, Korea and Japan markets, working with both institutional and intermediary clients.

The Asia product team also collaborates closely with the Global Multi-asset product and portfolio management teams, delivering Schroders’ global Multi-Asset capability whilst ensuring our solutions are relevant to local client needs.

Yu joins Schroders from Standard Life Investments, Hong Kong, where he was Investment Director in Multi-asset for Asia Pacific. He brings with him over 13 years of experience in finance, including roles at Wellington Management, Wells Fargo and Barclays Capital and has worked across Asia and the US. He holds a Master of Financial Engineering from Hass Business School, University of California – Berkeley.

Garth Taljard, Head of Multi-asset Management at Schroders, said: “We have seen continued and growing demand from investors in Asia for Multi-Asset solutions. With markets looking increasingly expensive, and the prospect of rising volatility, investors are looking for strong asset allocation and risk management skills to generate outcomes meeting their needs. Yu brings with him a wealth of experience, which will allow us to continue to deliver high quality solutions and client service in Asia.”
