Mirae Asset appoints new head of UK sales
Mirae Asset Global Investments has appointed Nicolas Jones as head of UK sales.
The manager, with some $60bn in AUM, said that Jones would lead Mirae Asset’s distribution to the UK institutional and wholesale market, with particular focus on its range of 12 Luxembourg domiciled Sicav funds.
Mirae Asset said it has seen strong inflows to its products from UK investors in recent months.
Jones has some 25 years of financial sector experience and joins from his previous role as Aon Hewitt, where he developed a sales pipeline for that manager into the UK insitutional and wholesale market. Previous positions have been held at LGT Capital, HSBC Global Asset Management, and Gartmore.
Ashley Dale, chief marketing officer at Mirae Asset said: “Building on strong asset inflows, I am extremely happy that Nicolas will be joining Mirae Asset in London to build out Mirae Asset’s UK distribution strategy. He is a veteran salesperson and will no doubt be crucial in expanding knowledge of Mirae Asset’s Asian equity expertise. We now have an excellent team in Europe, covering most geographies, including MENA.”
