Janus Henderson Investors has hired Shanice Loo as director of sales management.
In this newly-created role, Loo will coordinate sales campaigns, oversee distribution team workflow and manage Janus Henderson’s master agent relationship in Taiwan.
Loo joins Janus Henderson following a brief career break. Prior to that, she was head of funds distribution at Aberdeen Standard Investments, where she garnered more than a decade of client service experience.
Loo’s appointment marks the second notable hire to Janus Henderson’s Asia distribution team in recent months.
In January, the firm hired Marjorie Soh as sales manager. She joined from Lazard Asset Management, where she covered both institutional and intermediary channels. Prior to that, Soh spent several years at Aberdeen Standard Investments, where she was elevated to associate director of institutional sales.
Both Loo and Soh report to head of intermediary sales for Asia ex-Japan, Alexander Ng, who himself joined the firm in July 2022.
Of the appointments, CEO for Singapore, Andrew Hendry said, “We are pleased to welcome Shanice and Marjorie to the firm. Asia is a key area of focus for Janus Henderson and the client service experience and knowledge they bring will undoubtedly contribute to this growth while enhancing our ability to meet our clients’ constantly evolving needs.”
