Mirae Asset appoints managing director for European business


Mirae Asset Global Investments, an Asian asset management company, has appointed Kenho Kim as managing director of the company’s European business, Mirae Asset Global Investments (UK).

Kim will be based in London and will direct the firm’s activities throughout the region.

Kim joined Mirae Asset in 2007 as a member of the international business division and was promoted to head of division in 2008, where he played an instrumental role in launching the Mirae Asset Global Discovery Sicav Fund, a Luxembourg domiciled Ucits III fund.

Prior to joining Mirae Asset, he was a portfolio manager at Korea’s National Pension Service, where he spearheaded the establishment of the fund’s overseas investment capabilities. He has ten years’ investment experience.

Kim was recently recognised by Korea’s Ministry of Finance for his contribution to the development of the country’s sovereign wealth fund.

Kim says: “I am delighted to join Mirae Asset in London and to have the opportunity to apply my experience of working in Asia to the UK and European markets. As European investors look to widen their exposure to emerging market equities, Mirae Asset’s impressive track record and specialist approach means it is well placed to benefit from this trend.”
