Harvest Global Investments has appointed Ashley Dale as chief business development officer and chief marketing officer to lead the marketing and business development across Asia, North and South America, Europe and the Middle East.
The size and position of HGI as a wholly owned subsidiary of Harvest Fund Management Co, the Chinese asset manager with some $97bn of AUM, means that Dale will be responsible for business flowing both ways: from international investors looking to invest in China, and from mainland Chinese institutions looking to allocate globally.
Dale will be working to support upcoming fund launches by building HGI’s global distribution network, both under its own name, but also through Deutsche Asset Wealth Management, which holds a 30% stake in the business.
Previously, Dale held the role of chief marketing officer and head of International Business Development at Mirae Asset Global Investment. He has also held roles at CLSA, GLS Capital, and SG Securities. In his new role he will be based in Hong Kong.
