Nikko AM Adds Aberdeen Vet Pacileo To London Team

Apr 4 2011 | 8:47am ET

Asian investment management company Nikko has named Violet Pacileo assistant director of product management, based in London.

Pacileo comes to Nikko AM from Aberdeen Asset Management, where she served on the marketing and business management team for the Benelux region. Prior to that she had been with the same company in Tokyo as an assistant portfolio manager on the Japanese investment. Pacileo joined Aberdeen in 2008 from Merrill Lynch Japan Securities, where she spent two years as a research assistant in the Japanese automotive equity team.

In her new post, Pacileo will represent the Asia-based portfolio management teams in Europe, providing investors insight into Nikko AM’s investment products, strategies, processes and performance. She will be involved in all aspects of the positioning, communication, sales and service for the company’s Asian and Japanese equity products, reporting to Nikko AM Europe’s Lora-Ann Chiginsky (director, business development) and Kay Akast (head of marketing and client services).

Charlie Metcalfe, president of Nikko AM Europe, said:

“We are pleased that Violet has agreed to join us. We are always looking to add experienced individuals with a deep understanding of the Asian markets to our growing European business team. Given her portfolio management background and fluency in Japanese, Violet will be a vital London-based link between our Asian managers and European based clients and prospects.”

Nikko Asset Management is headquartered in Tokyo, with total AUM of US$145 billion. Its planned acquisition of DBS Asset Management, part of DBS Bank, will increase this by US$7 billion
