Manulife Asset Management expands institutional business
Manulife Asset Management has expanded its institutional sales network.
This includes expanding James Chen's role to head of institutional business & relationship management, international, from head of institutional business & relationship management, Asia, and hiring James Wheeler as head of institutional sales, Europe & Middle East.
Chen (pictured) says: "I am thrilled to lead the expansion of Manulife Asset Management's sales network into the European institutional market and welcome James Wheeler to the team. Based in the company's Hong Kong office, Wheeler will draw on his extensive institutional sales experience in the European market to deliver our increasingly diverse range of public market and private asset investment opportunities to institutional investors in the region."
In 2012 the company expanded its portfolio solutions group, a global team of asset allocation experts, into Asia and added new investment teams to cover global equities, emerging markets debt and US small cap equities.
Wheeler has more than 12 years of experience in the financial services industry. He spent the past nine years with Legal & General Investment Management in London, including the last six years as senior client sales & relationship manager focusing on European institutional clients. During this time he developed a strong network of relationships with large pension funds, insurance companies and investment consultants in the region. Prior to that he worked with International Financial Data Services and the Royal Bank of Scotland.
