Madeline Ho joins NGAM from Fidelity Worldwide Investment where she served as Regional Head of Southeast Asia since 2006. Prior to her seven years with Fidelity, she served as Singapore Country Head for Franklin Templeton Investments.
Her appointment is part of a continued expansion of NGAM’s wholesale capabilities in
the region and follows the recent opening of an office in Hong Kong in November, the firm’s fifth in Asia Pacific.
“Madeline brings with her an unparalleled depth of experience in the region that will be critical to our continued growth and expansion in Singapore and across Asia Pacific. Her knowledge and understanding of the needs of retail and high-net-worth investors will be instrumental in helping construct more durable portfolios that can meet the challenges of modern markets,” said John Hailer, president and chief executive officer, the Americas and Asia.
NGAM, which manages US$734 billion AUM globally (as of end Q3 2012) 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, Taipei and Beijing, employing over 50 people in a region that has been one of the firm’s fastest-growing global markets.
Asia AUM has grown 48% since 2009 to US$23.4 billion (Q3 2012).
The NGAM approach to portfolio construction is based on a unique investment philosophy called Durable Portfolio Construction ® , which recognizes that investors wish to combine a desire for returns with a renewed emphasis on seeking protection of their assets. By making risk the primary consideration for asset allocation and enhancing diversification through alternative investments and smarter use of traditional asset classes, investors can minimize the impact of extreme market movements, stay invested and meet their objectives in up and down markets.
