Greater China equity outperformer quits French firm

Greater China equity outperformer quits French firm

Citywire + rated manager Jun He has left Comgest after five years with the French asset management firm, Citywire Global has learned.

He formally stepped down at the end of October in order to pursue other personal interests.

He, who was based in the company’s Hong Kong office, had served as an analyst and latterly as a portfolio manager on the Comgest Growth Greater China Euro fund.

His former co-manager David Raper remains as a lead manager on the fund and is joined by Baijing Yu, who had worked as a research analyst since joining in August 2011.

Comgest recently strengthened this team with the appointment of Jasmine Kang on October 20, who will serve as a Chinese equity analyst reporting to Raper.

He and Raper had worked together on the Dublin-domiciled China equity fund since April 2011. The fund was launched in 2001.

In a note to shareholders, Comgest said: ‘Jun He, analyst/portfolio manager at Comgest Far East (Hong Kong) covering Chinese Equities has stepped down from his activities and left Comgest at the end of October to pursue other personal interests.’

He had formerly worked for Cazenove Asia as a research analyst covering the Chinese equity market, before joining Citigroup Global Markets as a vice president for China equity research.

Immediately prior to joining Comgest in 2009, He had served as chief financial officer for Anton Oilfield Services group.

The Comgest Growth Greater China Euro fund returned 35% in US dollar terms over the three years to the end of October 2014. This is while its Citywire benchmark, the MSCI Golden Dragon TR USD, rose 33% over the same period.
