Singapore, 4 November 2021 – Global asset manager VanEck has expanded its team in Singapore in response to the growing demand for exchange traded funds (ETFs) from institutional investors in the region and as part of its strategy to strengthen its presence around the world. VanEck currently manages in excess of US$80 billion for its investors globally.
Tiffany Tan has recently joined VanEck as a marketing manager in Singapore. She joins from Nikko Asset Management Group where she was an investment writer. Before that, she worked as a fixed income portfolio specialist with Eastspring Investments and as a product manager for Partners Group. She studied accountancy at Singapore Management University.
Arian Neiron, CEO & Managing Director – VanEck Asia Pacific, said: "This appointment is key to our plans to expand our footprint in the Asia-Pacific region as demand for our products grows there. Tiffany will work with our teams around the world to deepen engagement of our passive and active ETF and UCITS fund solutions.
“We are continuing to see strong appetite for our strategies. In addition, we expect further momentum to build in the Asia-Pacific region as the low interest rate environment has seen an uplift in institutional investor risk-taking in the pursuit of income strategies, and thematic ETFs drawing attention from investors seeking structural growth opportunities.”
