Asset manager Robeco has appointed Jie Lu as head of investments for China. Lu will also continue in his role as general manager and legal representative of Robeco Shanghai.
He joined the company in 2015 as head of research for China and has more than 13 years of investment experience, working both in Shanghai and Hong Kong. In his new capacity, he reports to Fabiana Fedeli, global head of fundamental equities, based in Rotterdam.
Liying Du, based in Hong Kong, will become lead portfolio manager for offshore Chinese equities strategies. She has been co-managing the strategies since 2016 and will be joined by Lin Tang, who will relocate to Hong Kong from Shanghai as co-portfolio manager. The Chinese A-share strategy will continue to be sub-advised by Jie Lu.
The team will be supported by five senior equity analysts based in Shanghai, Hong Kong and Rotterdam, and is in the process of further expanding. The China-focused fundamental equities strategies will be managed in the same way by the China investment team and the China investment ideas will be applied to all other fundamental equities strategies.
