Janus Henderson makes new Asia appointment
Global active asset manager Janus Henderson Group has announced it has appointed Andrew Hendry to the Singapore-based role of Head of Distribution in Asia (ex-Japan), to commence in February 2022.
Hendry will take on the responsibilities of the overall strategy and management of Janus Henderson’s distribution functions across Asia (excluding Japan and Australia), focusing on the maintenance, growth and diversification of the distribution business to continue meeting clients’ needs.
Reporting to Suzanne Cain, Global Head of Distribution at Janus Henderson, Hendry will develop client partnerships across institutional and intermediary avenues and will collaborate with leaders across the firm to enhance business development opportunities.
Hendry has 23 years of global experience and his most recent role was Head of Distribution – Asia Pacific at abrdn (previously Aberdeen Standard Investments). He has also previously worked at Westoun Advisors, M&G Investments and Capital Group.
“We are excited to welcome Andrew to the firm. His wealth of experience from some of the global asset management industry’s leading firms, coupled with his steadfast client-centric approach, will enable growth in the region and ensure we continue to meet our clients’ evolving needs,” Cain said.
“Andrew’s appointment, in addition to the appointments of Shinichi Aizawa as Executive Chairman and President of Janus Henderson Investors (Japan), as well as Tomoyasu Tanimoto as Head of Distribution in Japan, demonstrates Janus Henderson’s ongoing commitment to building a best-in-class team and client offering in Asia.”
The new appointment follows several other key hires across Janus Henderson’s Global Distribution team in the last year, including the Global Head of Consultant Relations, Global Head of Client Experience, Head of North America Institutional, Director of Institutional Solutions in Australia, and Deputy Head of Investment Trusts.
