JP Morgan Private Bank has appointed Ulysses Lau as head of investments and engagement for Asia.
In his new role, Lau will lead the investment solutions and specialists teams in the region, primarily developing market growth strategy and implementing new tactics to enhance the firm’s investment platform.
Lau will continue to be based in Hong Kong and will report to Kam Shing Kwang, chief executive officer for JP Morgan Private Bank in Asia.
Lau succeeds Diana Robinson, who will relocate from Hong Kong to London and assume a similar role, leading the investment adviser team for the firm’s UK, Ireland and Channel Islands business.
Lau has over 15 years of investment experience at JP Morgan Private Bank in the region across different markets. Most recently he was the head of investments and advice for Hong Kong and the Philippines, where he led his team in providing portfolio management and advisory services for clients with investments across asset classes.
“We are moving from strength to strength, with Ulysses helming our investment platform in the region. He will take forward Diana’s significant contributions that have expanded our investment capabilities, in particular our approach to sustainable investing. Our team’s passion to find and tailor the best investment solutions for our ultra-high net worth clients has always been our top priority,” said Kam.
