Douglas Appell, a Boston-based reporter with Pensions & Investments covering the business of money management for the past nine years, will be moving to Singapore early this month to open the newspaper's first office in Asia.
With a growing number of money managers in the U.S., Europe and Asia establishing a global presence, and institutional investors — including sovereign wealth funds — abandoning their home country biases, P&I will look to broaden its coverage of that story.
Mr. Appell is well acquainted with the region. He reported from Japan, Malaysia and Singapore for 14 years, primarily with Dow Jones & Co.'s business newswire as well as the company's Asian Wall Street Journal, before joining P&I in October 2003.
Beginning Oct. 8, Mr. Appell can be reached at:
Pensions & Investments, Regus Samsung Hub, 3 Church St., #08-00, Singapore 049483. His phone number will be 65-6408-0158 and his fax number, 65-6408-0101. His e-mail remains the same: dappell@ pionline.com. n
