Leading global data and index provider MSCI has appointed Simone Bouch as head of Australia and New Zealand client coverage.
Based in MSCI’s Sydney offices, Bouch reports to head of APAC client coverage, Jack Lin. The new role focuses on developing the company’s presence in Australia and New Zealand across all its offerings. This includes its indices, analytics, environmental, social and governance (ESG) developments and real estate.
Last month, MSCI saw its experienced head for Asia Pacific, Chin-Ping Chia, depart after 18 years with the company.
Bouch joins MSCI having over 25 years of investment management experience. Her most recent position was head of distribution for Australasia at Aberdeen Standard Investments. Bouch has also held roles at Morgan Stanley Investment Management, Henderson Global Investors and AMP Capital.
Jack Lin said in a statement: “Simone brings a breadth and depth of expertise to the Australia and New Zealand client coverage team, to ensure MSCI supports our growing client base as they continue their adoption of ESG in their investment and portfolio management decisions.”
