Equity Trust, the independent trust and fiduciary services firm with offices in over 30 global locations, hired Johnson Har to join its Hong Kong operation this week. Har will be Regional Sales and Marketing Executive for Custom House, the firm’s fund services division. The appointment signals Equity Trust’s intention of strengthening its fund services offering in Asia, where start-up numbers and industry AUM are recovering well post ’08. Equity Trust merged its own fund services in a joint venture with Custom House in ’08 to create Custom House Global Fund Services Ltd, a global specialist independent fund administrator. Har’s key responsibilities will be to raise the profile of Custom House’s capabilities in Hong Kong and China, and develop client relationships in the region. Har joins from Newedge Group in Hong Kong where he worked as an analyst. Prior to this he was an Investor Relations officer at HSBC. In total, he brings four years’ specialist fund experience to the table. Commenting on Har’s appointment, Nigel Rivers, MD of Equity Trust Hong Kong said he was “delighted that Johnson has joined us”. “He will make a strong contribution to our ambitions to extend our fund services operation in Hong Kong and throughout Greater China,” added Rivers.
