Chris Durack and Susan Soh were named co-heads of Asia-Pacific at Schroder Investment Management, effective April 1.
They replace Lieven Debruyne, who was named global head of distribution in September. After working to ensure a smooth handover, Mr. Debruyne will relocate to London from Hong Kong, said a Schroders spokesman in an email.
Mr. Durrack and Ms. Soh retain their current roles – Mr. Durrack as head of Australia and Ms. Soh as head of the Singapore business, said a news release Monday.
Schroders also announced that Noriaki Kurose will join the firm in Tokyo as its country head of Japan, effective May 1.
Mr. Kurose will succeed Shigesuke Kashiwagi, who has decided to step down from the role upon completion of his term of directorship "to pursue other interests," the spokesman said. Mr. Kashiwagi could not immediately be reached for comment.
Schroders had £500.2 billion ($656.1 billion) of assets under management as of Dec. 31.
Mr. Kurose will join from Pictet Asset Management, where he was managing director and board member of the firm's Japan business.
A Pictet spokesman could not immediately be reached for comment.
