Jiho Han joined State Street Global Advisors in Hong Kong as a managing director and senior quantitative researcher, fixed income, cash and currency.
The position is new. Mr. Han will contribute to developing and implementing SSGA's global fixed-income and currency quantitative strategies, said a Hong Kong-based spokeswoman.
Mr. Han will report to Ramu Thiagarajan, the firm's Boston-based senior managing director and global head of fixed income, cash and currency research, as well as chairman of its technical committee.
An AllianceBernstein spokesman said a search is underway to fill that position.
