Amy Cho joins from Schroders, replacing Loretta Ng, who is leaving M&G to pursue other opportunities.

M&G Investments has named Amy Cho as head of Asia Pacific and as CEO of M&G Investments Singapore, pending regulatory approval. Her appointment is effective 1 November and she is a replacement for Loretta Ng, who is leaving M&G.

Cho most recently served as CEO of Hong Kong and deputy head of Asia Pacific at Schroders. She has also worked at Pictet Asset Management, First State Investments, HSBC Asset Management and Citibank.

“We look forward to welcoming Amy, who has a proven track record and significant experience in successfully driving business development, to drive our strategy and growth in the region, particularly in our focus markets of Japan, Korea, Taiwan, Singapore and Hong Kong,” said Neal Brooks, global head of product and distribution at M&G.

“Loretta has made a significant contribution to the growth of our Asian business since she joined in 2019, including the build out of our investment capabilities in the region. She leaves with our thanks for her dedication and with our very best wishes for the future.”

“I am thrilled to be joining M&G at a time when the Asia-Pacific region is poised for unprecedented asset and wealth growth. My focus will be on further developing and deepening our relationships with asset owners and intermediaries, leveraging the firm’s commitment to client-focused strategies and localised investment expertise,” said Cho.

“The Apac region is integral to the global success of M&G, and we look forward to contributing by ensuring that our initiatives are as successful locally as they are worldwide.”
