Aberdeen Standard Investments said Yingzhe Zhao has resigned from her position as investment director for private equity (PE), effective 13 July.
The fund house's PE business is structured on a global basis for secondaries, co-investments and venture capital.
Zhao’s responsibilities in these strategies have already been undertaken by Aberdeen Standard's existing relevant teams, a spokesperson from the company has confirmed.
Additionally, her responsibilities in primary fund commitments have been assumed by other China-focused members of the Asia Pacific private equity team, the spokesperson added.
Based in Hong Kong, Zhao joined Aberdeen Standard in September 2015.
