Aberdeen Standard has strengthened its Australian fixed income team with the appointment of a new investment manager.
Amanda Chong will take on the role after working with Susquehanna International Group in senior research roles for nearly 12-years.
She has also held research and analyst positions with St George Bank, UBS Group and Maple-Brown Abbott.
"Her valuable knowledge and experience investing in Australia and major markets in Asia, from investment-grade to subordinated and distressed debt of corporates both large and small, will further diversify and enhance the skill set of the existing team," Aberdeen Standard said.
Adam McCabe, head of fixed income, Asia and Australia at Aberdeen Standard said: "We are delighted to welcome Amanda to the team. The Australian market has undergone significant structural change, especially with respect to the management of fixed income assets."
"The changing environment means we need to continually adjust our skill-set to deliver fixed income solutions that meet our clients' needs.
"Amanda's appointment further underlines our commitment to maintaining our focus on investment excellence and developing new innovative solutions."
