Front Point Partners has added the head of SHK Fund Management to its Hong Kong office.
Christope Lee—who is also chairman of the Alternative Investment Management Association for Hong Kong and China—has been named a regional managing director at FrontPoint, which is building out its executive ranks in advance of its planned spin-off from Morgan Stanley this year. Lee will represent the firm’s entire fund lineup in the Asia-Pacific region, Asian Investor reports, in the newly-created post.
