MSCI said Tuesday it has hired Simone Bouch as the firm's Sydney-based head of Australia and New Zealand client coverage.
Ms. Bouch takes over those responsibilities from Jack Lin, MSCI's head of APAC client coverage, who took on the role on an interim basis after Michael Anderson left the company in October.
Ms. Bouch comes to MSCI from Aberdeen Standard Investments where she served as head of distribution for Australasia.
A spokeswoman for Aberdeen Standard says Ms. Bouch's responsibilities have been taken up by other members of the firm's Australian distribution team. Brett Jollie, managing director and head of Australia oversees local distribution in Australia, while Andrew Hendry, the firm's Singapore-based head of distribution Asia Pacific, provides regional leadership, she said.
