The financial community in Hong Kong is in a state of shock after news filtered through of the deaths of two high-profile industry professionals in the same week.
Bosera Asset Management (International) Chief Executive Keith Li passed away from a brain haemorrhage on Monday (March 11).
The company announced it is now mourning Mr. Li’s death and proceeding with the transition of his tasks.
Prior to joining Bosera in 2003, Mr. Li worked for Invesco and Merrill Lynch. He left Bosera in September 2006 to serve at Citi Private Bank and then E.J. McKay & Co. He then rejoined Bosera in 2008 to take the helm at the institutional division and subsequently transferred to Bosera Asset Management (International) in April 2010.
Separately, the South China Morning Post today (March 13) reported that Mark Liinamaa, senior research analyst with Citigroup’s Asia natural resources team, had died of a heart attack during a business trip to Laos earlier this week. A Citigroup spokesperson declined to comment, saying the case was a “personal matter”.
