Kejal Somaia, co-head of multi-asset solutions at First Sentier Investors (FSI), has departed the firm after 17 years.

Somaia made the decision to leave in Q1 2023, the firm confirmed. 

He first joined FSI, then known as Colonial First State Global Asset Management, as a portfolio manager for global investment solutions in 2006. 

He moved to multi-asset solutions in 2010 and was named co-head of multi-asset solutions in 2019.

“Over two stints, I have accumulated 17 years of memories with First Sentier Investors (and its previous incarnations). For someone who often sought new pastures early in their career, my longevity at FSI can be attributed to being afforded plenty of opportunities and responsibilities to fuel my learning and growth,” Somaia wrote on LinkedIn.

“The multi-asset journey has been a multi-faceted and multi-player effort. It is often stated that the greatest asset in funds management is its people, and I can attest to that. 

“I've had the privilege of working with some exceptionally talented and dedicated individuals that I have learned from immensely. This permeates through my immediate team members, the broader FSI team, and across the industry from clients to consultants.”

The role of leading multi-asset solutions at FSI has been taken up by Andrew Harman, who has been with the firm since 2008.
