Money management giant Neuberger Berman Group is beefing up its Hong Kong-based team two new colorfully-named hires.

The firm recently appointed Jason Henchman as Asia-Pacific chief operating officer and Chris Gunns as head of consultant relations for the region.  Both are newly-created positions.

“As Neuberger Berman continues to build its presence in Asia Pacific, adding high-caliber individuals is extremely important in helping us meet the needs of the region’s sophisticated investment clients,” said Tony Edwards, head of Asia-Pacific (ex Japan) for Neuberger Berman, commented.

In his role as COO, Henchman is responsible for administrative and control functions in the region, as well as general support for the firm’s businesses in Japan, Hong Kong, China, Singapore and Australia. He previously served as the Asia Pacific (ex Japan) head of legal and compliance at Legg Mason. 

As head of consultant relations, Gunns is responsible for Neuberger Berman’s engagement in the region with investment and asset consultants. Prior to joining Neuberger Berman, Gunns was the regional manager of institutional sales and business development at ING Investment Management Asia Pacific.

Neuberger Berman has approximately $173 billion in assets under management.
