Janus Henderson Investors has named Alex Ng as head of intermediary sales, Asia, ex-Japan, with responsibility for leading and managing the intermediary sales function across Southeast Asia and Greater China with a focus on partnering with global banking clients to ensure their investment needs are met.
Ng, who will commence work in this newly created role in July and report to Andrew Hendry, head of distribution, Asia, ex-Japan, brings close to 15 years of experience in the funds management industry. He joins from Federated Hermes, where he was head of wholesale distribution, Asia, ex-Japan.
