In his role, Sriskandarajan will be responsible for leading the firm’s growth strategy in Asia- Pacific. He will be based in Hong Kong and will report to Barry Mclnerney, co-CEO of BMO Global AM and Albert Yu, CEO of BMO Financial Group (Asia).
He joined BMO Global AM in 2013 and helped the firm establish a base for its institutional asset management business in Melbourne, Australia.
“Sriskandarajan is an expert in his field and has a strong financial services network in the Asia- Pacific region,” Mclnerney said.
Mclnerney noted that with Sriskandarajan taking on a new role, BMO Global AM would be actively recruiting for an individual to lead its institutional sales business in Australia. The successful candidate will team with Michael Angwin, BMO Global AM’s director of intermediary sales. These two roles report to Sriskandarajan.
Sriskandarajan replaces Amit Prakash, who has moved to a global role within BMO as managing director of global exchange traded funds and alternative investments.
In August, BMO hired Monique Chan from Edmond de Rothschild in Hong Kong to serve as CEO for its private banking business in Asia, FSA reported earlier.
