Fixed income investment manager PIMCO has appointed Adrian Stewart, executive vice president and current head of PIMCO Australia and New Zealand, as head of client management for APAC ex-Japan.
Stewart would relocate to PIMCO’s Hong Kong office in the near future and still retain responsibility for Australian and New Zealand client relationships.
Brendon Rodda, executive vice president, would assume leadership of business management in addition to his current role as head of distribution for global wealth management in Australia.
Rob Mead, managing director and co-head of Asia-Pacific portfolio management would lead PIMCO’s Australia office.
Stewart would continue to report to Kimberly Stafford, managing director and head of Asia-Pacific who is also based in Hong Kong.
“Among his many business priorities, he will deepen penetration across the firm’s product suite including alternatives, Asia credit and ESG [environmental, social and governance] and, drive innovation across new vehicles to meet the growing diverse needs of investors in the region,” Stafford said.
He had over 27 years of investment and financial services experience, and prior to joining PIMCO in 2014, he was as head of wholesale distribution, marketing and product management at Macquarie during his seven years with the Australia Bank.
