RELATED TOPICS​

Matthews Asia has appointed Andy Rothman as investment strategist.

In this newly created role based in San Francisco, Rothman will be a key member of the investment team, responsible for developing research focused on China’s ongoing economic and political developments.
 
His insights into China will support the Matthews China investment team and complement the wider research efforts conducted by the broader investment team.
 
Rothman will also play a key role in representing the firm’s deep expertise of the developments in China and, more broadly in the Asia region, to the firm’s clients and prospects around the world. He will act as a spokesperson for the firm on China and play an important role in the delivery of Matthew’s thought leadership initiatives related to investing in Asia.
 
Rothman previously spent 14 years as a China macroeconomic strategist at CLSA, where he conducted analysis into China and delivered his insights to the firm’s institutional investor base. Prior to this, he spent 17 years in the US Foreign Service, with a diplomatic career focused on China, including as head of the macroeconomics and domestic policy office of the US Embassy in Beijing.
 
In total, Rothman has lived and worked in China for more than 20 years.
 
William Hackett, chief executive officer, says: “We are extremely pleased to welcome Andy to Matthews Asia. With almost three decades of experience focused on China, he is considered one of the leading authorities on the country’s economy, politics and social history. As we continue to see growth in our business, our increasingly global client base will undoubtedly benefit from his insight and analysis on China and the Asia region. I am delighted we have been able to attract someone of Andy’s calibre to the firm and his appointment further cements our reputation as a leading, forward-thinking Asia-specialist investment manager.”
 
Rothman says: “I'm delighted to have this opportunity to join Matthews Asia. Given their highly regarded reputation as a focused, specialist investment manager on Asia, I look forward to working closely with the investment team and sharing insights into China and Asia with the firm’s growing client base.”
