Nikko Asset Management has appointed three seasoned executives to lead, respectively, client development in the Middle East, Africa and Asia, consultant relations on a global basis and sales in North Asia.

John Howland-Jackson, based in London, has joined Nikko Asset Management as its vice chairman of Nikko Asset Management Europe and senior advisor for the Middle East, Africa and Asia region. His long experience in the financial industry, which includes developing relationships with central banks and sovereign wealth funds, will be instrumental in broadening the firm’s presence. A veteran financier with more than 40 years of experience, Howland-Jackson most recently worked as a senior managing director at ING Bank.
 
Ian Lewis, based in Singapore, has assumed the position of head of global consultant relations. Lewis has more than 25 years of experience in the financial industry and worked for companies including UBS Global Asset Management and Towers Perrin (now Towers Watson). He was most recently a partner at Ardevora Asset Management.
 
Charles Allard, based in Hong Kong, has been appointed head of sales, North Asia. Nikko Asset Management is aiming to extend its reach toward sophisticated investors in the region, where it has a joint venture in place with Rongtong Fund Management. Allard has 25 years experience in the financial industry, most of it spent in Asia. He previously worked for Winton Capital Management.
 
“We are extremely pleased that John, Ian and Charles are joining Nikko Asset Management at this pivotal time in the company’s development,” says Hideo Abe, executive vice chairman of the Tokyo-based asset manager. “As we position Nikko Asset Management to be Asia’s premier global asset manager, these key executives will be instrumental in helping us further expand our business with some of the most sophisticated investors in the world.”
 
Howland-Jackson, Lewis and Allard joined the firm on 3 November.
