Gramercy Hires Two For New Hong Kong, Singapore Offices

Mar 9 2011 | 10:53am ET

Emerging markets specialist Gramercy has added a pair of offices in Asia and a pair of new executives to staff them.

The Greenwich, Conn.-based institutional asset manager has opened bases in Hong Kong and Singapore. Making their home at those new digs are William Shia in Hong Kong and Andrew Williams in Singapore.

Shia, who joins Gramecy from Clearwater Capital Partners, was named head of Asian investments. Williams, who worked most recently at JPMorgan Asset Management, joined the firm as regional head for Asia and the Middle East.

"We are excited about the investment opportunities we are seeing in emerging markets across Asia and have been focused on building out our presence in that area for quite some time," Robert Koenigsberger, chief investment officer at Gramercy, said. "Bill and Andy are great additions to our team and both bring a strong knowledge of the local markets."
