Eastspring Investments has expanded its multi-asset solutions team in Singapore with two senior hires.
Jason Hepner joins the company as a director and senior portfolio manager, while Mary Nicola joins as a director for G10 FX and Asian fixed income strategist.
Both Hepner and Nicola report to Singapore-based Colin Graham, who joined the company in January as its chief investment officer for multi-asset solutions.
In the newly-created role, Hepner is responsible for the investment performance of allocated multi asset strategies, as well as for enhancing portfolio construction.
Nicola, on the other hand, is responsible for global macro research. She is also expected to generate investment ideas with a focus on G10 FX and Asian rates and contribute to their investment performance.
Hepner joined Eastspring from Standard Life Aberdeen, while Nicola joined from Aviva Investors in Singapore.
Eastspring manages a few multi-asset funds, including the Global Market Navigator fund, the Global Multi Asset Income Plus Growth fund, and the Monthly Income Plan.
The firm manages about $182 billion in assets, as of end-June.
