As reported last month, Wan succeeds Ilex Lam as CEO of BEA Union Investment. It is not known where he is going, but a spokeswoman for BEA Union said he will remain with the company "for a period of time to ensure a smooth transition".
Wan has more than 15 years of experience in the Asian asset management industry.
Before joining the IFPHK as CEO in June 2010, she was the CEO of Allianz Global Investors (HK), where she was responsible for growth strategies and managing multinational distributors. She also served as vice chairman of the Hong Kong Investment Funds Association.
“Her proven track record in the asset management industry will be invaluable to us,” said Brian Li, the chairman of BEA Union Investment and deputy chief executive of BEA. “I am confident that Ms Wan will enable our business to achieve even greater success as we continue to expand throughout Greater China.”
BEA Union Investment is an asset management joint venture between BEA and Union Asset Management Holding, and is the sole asset investment centre for BEA and Union Investment in Asia. The firm has over 200 employees, based in Hong Kong and Frankfurt/Main.
