RELATED TOPICS​

HSBC Global Asset Management has appointed Joanna Munro as Global Chief Investment Officer (CIO). Based in London, Munro will assume the role at the end of September, reporting directly to Nicolas Moreau, Global Chief Executive Officer.

Munro takes over from Chris Cheetham who, as announced in May, has decided to retire from his full-time executive role after more than four successful decades in the investment industry.
 
Munro steps into the role with over 30 years’ experience of delivering strong results in a diverse number of roles within asset management. She is currently Global Head of Stewardship and Fiduciary Governance and Chairperson of HSBC Global Asset Management UK. Having joined HSBC Global Asset Management as Global Chief Investment Officer of HSBC Investments in October 2005, Joanna has served as Head of Product and, more recently, Chief Executive Officer of the business’ Asia Pacific operations.
 
In addition to her work at HSBC Global Asset Management, Joanna is a non-Executive Director of the Investment Association in the UK and a founding member of the Diversity Project, where she initiated the Early Careers Workstream. Prior to that, she was a non-Executive Director of the CFA UK and a member of its Advisory Council.
 
Nicolas Moreau, Global CEO of HSBC Global Asset Management, says: “I am delighted to welcome Joanna into her new role as Global Chief Investment Officer. Her ability to encourage global collaboration, track record in bringing people together and attitude towards problem-solving makes her the ideal candidate for this role. I am confident that with her extensive, global experience we will be in an even stronger place to help clients meet their investment objectives.”  
 
Munro adds: “I am extremely proud to have been appointed and excited to start a new challenge at HSBC Global Asset Management. My background brings a fresh perspective to the role, and I look forward to working with my colleagues at HSBC Global Asset Management to meet our clients’ evolving investment needs.”
