Harvest Global Investments expands U.S. Office adds CEO, VP

Thursday, October 12, 2017
Opalesque Industry Update - Harvest Global Investments USA (Harvest USA), the Asian and Chinese markets specialist asset manager with over $110bn in AuM, announces the expansion of their New York office with two senior hires, including the appointment of a new CEO. The new hires are part of Harvest's international expansion strategy and plans to attract new U.S. investors looking for a local partner in China. Harvest USA offers investors a range of equity and bond funds.

Regis Dale, CEO Harvest Global Investments USA, will focus on managing the growth of the firm's distribution capabilities with U.S. clients. Regis' 25 years' experience in Greater China finance includes opening Chase Manhattan's Shanghai office in 1993. From 1994 to 2010 he worked in institutional equity sales, notably leading UBS's China institutional sales business in the U.S.

Angela Wang, Vice President, Business Development, will focus on distribution capabilities for U.S. clients. Angela has over eight years' experience in institutional sales. She worked at Harvest Global Investments in London, as well as at BOCI and BoA Merrill Lynch in Hong Kong.

U.S. investors currently have access to the firm's expertise via the Harvest Funds Intermediate Bond (HXIIX), which is a 4-star Morningstar rated fund managed by Harvest Global Investment's Managing Director and CIO, Thomas Kwan, and the Harvest China Evolution Equity Fund, managed by Yannan Chenye, Head of China Equity Research.

As investors seek alpha, they will benefit from Harvest USA's global scope and unparalleled knowledge of the world's second largest economy. Given complex structural changes occurring in China and throughout Asia, it is imperative that American investors rely on advice gleaned from two decades of on-the-ground experience.

Regis Dale, CEO of Harvest Global Investments (USA), said: "I am thrilled to join Harvest and to support its international expansion. Harvest is one of the largest institutional asset managers in China, and it is clear their expertise is indispensable for American investors, who view the firm as their local partner in the country. U.S. investors are underweight China, and as our sales and marketing capabilities grow, we expect to develop further products that will engage allocators looking at opportunities there."

James Sun, CEO of Harvest Global Investments, said: "We are keen to build our business development and distribution presence on the ground globally with high quality personnel. Regis and Angela exemplify the international pedigree and local expertise that characterizes Harvest. Our parentage and resources give Harvest a strong foundation in China, and provides investors with an independent and unique insight into Chinese markets and their place in the global economy."

Harvest is one of China's largest institutional asset managers, and works with consultants, pension funds, and RIAs in the U.S., along with European pensions and global sovereign wealth funds, to offer nuanced local Chinese opportunities.
