He reports to Carol Wong (pictured below), managing director in Asia Pacific.

Mo joins from a 16 year career at J.P. Morgan Asset Management, where he held a number of positions in distribution as well as building client relationships across Taiwan, Hong Kong and China.

In his last role, as head of China Retail Business, he was responsible for wealth management and client development for retail markets in China, dealing with both Chinese and foreign banks. Mo was a member of the J.P. Morgan Asset Management China executive committee.
