13/11/2018

Schroders is today announcing the appointment of Amy Cho as Chief Executive Officer for its Hong Kong business. Amy Cho succeeds Chris Durack who after three years in Hong Kong is returning to Australia to assume the position of CEO Australia at Schroders. Amy will join Schroders on 3 December.

In addition to the Hong Kong CEO position, Amy will take on the newly created role of Regional Head of Intermediary Clients, as Schroders recognises the importance of further developing its client relationships across Asia Pacific, reflecting the substantial changes the asset and wealth management industry is facing.  This will happen in close collaboration with Showbhik Kalra, Regional Head of Intermediary and Product, and the Country Heads across the region. Chris Durack, in addition to his new position as Australia CEO, will continue to oversee the Institutional business across the region, as he has done for the last three years. 

Amy Cho, who has over 25 years of industry experience, joins from Pictet where she was Managing Director and Regional Head of Business Development, APAC ex Japan and General Manager for Hong Kong and Taiwan. Prior to that, she has held senior positions at First State Investments, HSBC Asset Management and Citibank.

Lieven Debruyne, CEO of Asia Pacific at Schroders commented:

“I am extremely pleased Amy will be joining us as she brings with her significant knowledge of the Hong Kong market as well as a deep understanding of our client needs. Her unparalleled experience will help drive the next stage of growth of our successful Hong Kong business, in terms of delivering investment solutions for our clients as well as in the vital areas of governance and stewardship.

I also want to thank Chris Durack for his successful leadership of the Hong Kong business over the last three years and his significant contribution to Hong Kong’s asset management industry.”

Amy Cho, newly appointed CEO of Hong Kong at Schroders said:

“Schroders is an industry leader with a long history, a first class reputation and outstanding business performance. I am delighted to be joining the firm as the new CEO of Hong Kong.”
