Au-Yeung will report to head of the AIM portfolio service, Ewan Millar.
She will be responsible for AIM equity research, portfolio construction in addition to developing the fund house’s relationships with clients and advisers.

Earlier in her career, Au-Yeung also worked at Anderson Strathern and Aberdeen Asset Management.
Commenting on the appointment, Millar said: “We are delighted to welcome Ling to the team as we continue to grow our AIM Portfolio Service.

In May this year, Brooks Macdonald named Richard Hughes as CEO of Brooks Macdonald International.
Brooks Macdonald reported ‘positive’ net flows for its investment management business in the UK for the financial third quarter ended 31 March 2021.
The British wealth manager posted net inflows of 0.3% across its UK business in what it called ‘best quarter of the financial year to date.’
The rise was driven by positive net flows in UK Investment Management (UKIM), particularly in the Managed Portfolio Service (MPS).
