EFG Asset Management makes two key Hong Kong appointments


EFG Asset Management (EFGAM), the asset management arm of EFG International, has made two key Hong Kong-based appointments.

Nigel Sze has been appointed as Head of Asia. He moves from being Deputy CEO of EFG Bank Asia and Head of Private Banking in Hong Kong, roles he has undertaken since 2009. Before joining EFG Bank, Nigel was Asia Head for High Net Worth Clients at Citi Global Wealth Management, and prior to this Asia Head of Investment and Products. From 2001-2007 he was CEO, Barclays Private Bank, Asia Pacific Region.
Harmen Overdijk has been promoted to the role of Head of Investments, responsible for discretionary portfolio management services across the region. He joined EFG Bank in Hong Kong in 2008, and previously held senior positions at Fortis Bank and its affiliates.
The appointments reflect EFGAM’s strong commitment to the Asian region, and follows the recent appointment of top China equity fund manager, Mansfield Mok, who will be responsible for equity investing in China.  EFGAM is represented in Asia in Singapore and Hong Kong.
Jim Lee, CEO EFGAM, says: “We are delighted to welcome Nigel and Harmen to the team. Asia is attracting a lot of interest, reflecting its growing importance to the world economy. The changes we are making reflect our commitment to the region and our desire to extend our local investment capabilities. They will also enable us to better serve our clients – encompassing private banking clients of EFG Bank, as well as specialist segments served by EFGAM directly.”
