PineBridge names first head of consultant relations for Asia-Pacific

Michelle White joined PineBridge Investments in Singapore Nov. 13 as head of consultant relations for the Asia-Pacific region, a Hong Kong-based spokeswoman for the firm said.

The position is new..

Ms. White comes to PineBridge from Capital Group, where she served most recently as director of financial intermediaries for Singapore and Southeast Asia, according to a PineBridge news release Wednesday.

Veronica Dekrey, a Hong Kong-based spokeswoman for Capital Group, said a search is underway to find a replacement for that director of financial intermediaries role.

The news release said Ms. White will report to Rajeev Mittal, the firm's Hong Kong-based CEO for Asia, and Jason Fisher, PineBridge's Los Angeles-based global head of consultant relations.

The firm had $88.6 billion in assets under management globally as of Sept. 30, with more than half of that total being managed on behalf of Asia-Pacific-based clients, the news release said.
