Research Affiliates’ Vice Chairman and Co-Founder, Dr Jason Hsu, will lead Rayliant Global Advisors, an Asia-focused investment firm based in Hong Kong, as Chairman, CEO and majority owner.

Research Affiliates will retain a substantial minority interest in Rayliant (formerly Research Affiliates Global Advisors, the East Asia unit of Research Affiliates), which will focus on smart beta strategies tailored to the Asian market, as well as strategies based on Greater China equities and/or bonds which are designed for foreign institutional investors. Dr Hsu will continue to operate in a non-executive capacity at Research Affiliates as Vice Chairman and remain a partner and owner of Research Affiliates.
Hsu says: “There is an enormous opportunity in Asia to impact the investment marketplace to achieve better investor outcomes, much as Research Affiliates has done in the United States and EMEA. I'm excited to continue my collaboration with Research Affiliates, while taking on this new challenge. I am incredibly grateful to have the support of my partners to pursue this ambitious endeavour.”
Rob Arnott, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of Research Affiliates, says: “Rayliant Global Advisors will continue to support Research Affiliates’ mission to impact the global investment community for the benefit of investors. We think Jason is uniquely qualified to lead this effort in Asia; he's researched Asian investment markets extensively, and built an extraordinary network in East Asia. Jason will continue to help our business to grow with his entrepreneurial spirit, and we look forward to continuing to collaborate in research and product innovation.”
