Fidelity International appointed Lei Zhu as the firm's Hong Kong-based head of Asia fixed income effective in January.
She will join Fidelity International as managing director and be based in the asset manager's Hong Kong office, said a company news release Monday.
Ms. Zhu replaces Marty Dropkin who was appointed to the newly created role of head of equities, Asia Pacific in July, confirmed a company spokeswoman in an email.
Ms. Zhu will report to Steve Ellis, the firm's global chief investment officer, fixed income.
"Lei Zhu's breadth and depth of experience across the Asia Pacific region will add tremendous value to Fidelity as a whole. She has an exceptional track record and extensive knowledge of Asian fixed income markets," Mr. Ellis said in the release.
Ms. Zhu was managing director and head of fixed income Asia in Credit Suisse Asset Management's Hong Kong office.
A spokesman for Credit Suisse did not immediately respond to a request for information about Ms. Zhu's replacement.
As of Sept. 30, Fidelity International had $613 billion in assets under management.
