RBC Global Asset Management (RBC GAM) has expanded its equities business by appointing Tomonori Kaneko and David Soh as equity analysts, and Clement Cheng as equities trader at RBC GAM (Asia) Limited in Hong Kong.

Kaneko will oversee the Japanese market and will report to Nallamala, while Soh will be responsible to cover the Asia-Pacific ex-Japan region.

Cheng will be supported by Helen Loke to work on RBC GAM Asia’s new dealing desk.

Kaneko joined RBC GAM Asia from Marshall Wace where he served as a senior analyst and junior portfolio manager for Japan equity strategies for retail and institutional clients. Soh joined from Credit Suisse where he specialized in quantitative investment strategies for institutional fund managers focused on Asia-Pacific ex-Japan.

Cheng, with over seven years of experience in trading the regional markets, has joined RBC GAM Asia from Harvest Asset Management, where he was responsible for covering equities and derivatives primarily in Asia.

Mayur Nallamala, head of Asian equities at RBC Global Asset Management (Asia) Limited (RBC GAM Asia), said: "The new additions to our team in Hong Kong reinforce the commitment we are making in the region as we seek to deepen our international asset management operations. The growth of the team will allow us to offer expanded capabilities to our retail and institutional clients and complement our existing pool of expertise across a wide range of global mandates."
