Natixis Global Asset Management (NGAM), one of the 15 largest asset managers in the world based on AUM, has appointed Marie Teo as director of institutional sales, Southeast Asia. Based in Singapore, she will help drive overall development of the firm’s business in the region across institutional channels.
Ms. Teo joins NGAM from Amundi where she served as director and head of institutions for Southeast Asia. Prior to that, she was director, institutional marketing, for APS Komaba Asset Management in Singapore.
Ms. Teo’s appointment is part of a continued expansion of NGAM’s capabilities in the region and closely follows the recent addition of Madeline Ho, former regional head of Southeast Asia for Fidelity Worldwide Investment, as NGAM’s head of wholesale distribution for Asia Pacific and managing director of NGAM Singapore. Reporting to Ms. Ho, Ms. Teo joins with extensive knowledge of and experience in the institutional markets of Southeast Asia, a region of key significance to NGAM’s overall expansion in Asia.
“Marie’s expertise and experience will be critical in our efforts to help institutional investors across Asia manage risk more effectively and construct portfolios that meet the modern market challenges of rising volatility and low yields,” said Hervé Guinamant, president and CEO of Natixis Global Asset Management – international distribution.
NGAM, which manages US$785 billion AUM globally (as of March 31, 2013) and employs more than 3000 people around the world, first established a distribution presence in Asia in Tokyo in 2001 and now has offices in Singapore, Hong Kong, Korea, Taipei and Beijing. Asia is one of the firm’s fastest-growing global markets; Asia AUM has increased 49% in just over three years to US$24 billion (as of March 31, 2013).
