Alternative asset manager Gottex Fund Management has appointed Marc Fisher as head of marketing for the Asia Pacific region.
Based in Gottex’s Hong Kong office, Fisher will be central to the continued development of Gottex in the region, working closely with Max Gottschalk, chief executive of Gottex Asia, and Ronnie Wu, chief investment officer of Gottex Asia.
He joins Gottex from FRM where he was responsible for its Asia Pacific business (excluding Japan and Korea) and a member of the management committee.
He has a wide commercial network in Asia, in particular in Hong Kong, China, Japan, Singapore and the Middle East.
Before working at FRM, Fisher was a managing director at Citigroup where he was global head of fund of hedge fund sales and marketing.
This appointment follows Gottex’s acquisition earlier this year of Penjing Asset Management, an Asian alternative asset management provider.
Gottschalk says: “Marc Fisher’s appointment highlights our strong commitment to the Asian region and will enable us to benefit from the accelerating growth in this market. We believe his expertise and vision will be crucial in delivering the services and quality our clients expect and demand.”
