He will start in the new role in July, a spokeswoman said.
The firm, which has $1.4 trillion in assets under management globally, said in the statement that he will focus on new market and product opportunities.
"His appointment reflects our positive outlook on the Asia asset management opportunity and our commitment to continuing to build out our MSIM platform in the region," Daniel Simkowitz, head of investment management, said in the statement. "Michael will lead our strong Asia team and we look forward to leveraging his deep experience and relationships to further grow our presence."
MSIM declined to comment on his reporting line and who he replaces.
Mr. Levin was a managing director in New York at Goldman Sachs Asset Management. A spokeswoman declined to comment on his replacement.
