FrontPoint Picks SHK’s Lee To Head Asia-Pacific

Sep 10 2010 | 12:08pm ET

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.

Lee has spent the past decade as CEO of Hong Kong-based SHK, which he joined in 2000 after rising to the level of executive director at Goldman Sachs. He will remain the regional chairman of AIMA in his new post.

FrontPoint, which manages about US$7 billion, has been actively interviewing candidates for top positions in advance of its management buyout, expected within the next few months. The firm recently hired Level Global Investors’ Taki Vasilakis as chief compliance officer.
