The Bank of New York Mellon’s hedge fund administration unit has hired Kate Colchester to head its Asian sales effort.

Colchester joins from Eurekahedge, where she has served as director of marketing and publishing since the research firm’s founding seven years ago. At BNY Mellon’s alternative investment services group, she will serve as vice president of sales for Asia, based in Singapore.

“Kate brings considerable experience and contacts within the hedge fund and prime broker community across Asia,” her new boss, Andrew Gordon, executive vice president for broker-dealer and alternative investment services, said.

“The Bank of New York Mellon is rapidly expanding in the region, and commensurate with that we are broadening our team of local experts to ensure that clients with global needs have the kind of expertise they require anywhere in the world their business takes them.”
