Frederic NiamkeyMirae Asset Global Investments Group, an Asia-based emerging market equity specialist, has announced the hire of Frederic Niamkey as head of sales for French-speaking Europe.

In this newly created role, Niamkey will support Mirae’s expanding distribution capabilities in Europe at a time when assets under management have been rising.

Niamkey joins from Aberdeen Asset Management where he headed up the Aberdeen Geneva office and was also a senior business development manager from 2009. Prior to that he held positions at Credit Suisse Asset Management, UBS Wealth Management and financial services company, OVB.

Ashley Dale, chief marketing officer and head of international business development at Mirae Asset, says: “Frederic is a fantastic addition to a rapidly expanding European sales team. His experience and know-how in French speaking European markets will be a valuable asset to our London based team.

“Our Sicav funds are going from strength to strength and I am looking forward to working with Frederic to continue this asset raising momentum.”

In April, Funds Europe spoke with Mirae Asset’s Jung Ho Rhee, chief executive in Hong Kong, about the firm’s expansion.
