JP Morgan Private Bank has hired Alex Wolf as head of client investment strategy for Asia based in Hong Kong.
In the newly-created role, Wolf will work with the investment solutions teams in Asia and client investment teams globally to generate investment ideas for advisors and clients.
He will report to David Stubbs, chief client investment strategist at JP Morgan Private Bank.
Wolf joins from Aberdeen Standard Investments, where he conducted economic and geopolitical research as senior emerging markets economist.
Prior to that, he was with the US State Department, where he served as a US diplomat in Beijing and Taipei. He has also held posts at BAE Systems and Lehman Brothers.
JP Morgan’s Asia investment team saw another significant move earlier this year with Christophe Aba, managing director and Southeast Asia head of investments, relocating to the US to assume the role of head of investments for Mexico.
Diana Robinson, head of equities for Europe, Middle East and Africa, has relocated from JP Morgan's London office to succeed Aba in Singapore.
