Agus Tandiono was named Hong Kong-based senior fund manager at the C$192.8 billion (US$176.3 billion) Canada Pension Plan Investment Board.
The position is new, said Linda Sims, spokeswoman for the Toronto-based board. Mr. Tandiono will work on CPPIB's global corporate securities long/short equity team in Asia. His hiring is part of the CPPIB's expansion of the team, Ms. Sims said. The board plans to add more personnel in the future, but there's no timeline for when or how many new appointments will be made.
Mr. Tandiono was a Hong Kong-based fund manager at multistrategy hedge fund firm Citadel. He left the firm in 2013 and his position was not filled, said Katie Spring, Citadel spokeswoman.
