JANUS CAPITAL OPENS SINGAPORE OFFICE
TO TARGET INVESTORS IN SOUTHEAST ASIA
SINGAPORE – Janus Capital Group Inc. (NYSE: JNS) today officially launched a representative
office in Singapore to target the wealth management and institutional markets in Southeast Asia.
The office will be managed by Benjamin Chang, Co-Head of Janus Capital’s Asia Pacific ex Japan
region. Chang, who has more than 15 years of industry experience, joined Janus in 2004 to develop the
firm’s relationships with financial institutions in the region. Chang was previously a Director at Merrill
Lynch International Bank in Singapore and a Vice President of AIG Private Bank, where he held several
senior sales roles.
“The opening of our Singapore office reflects the strong momentum we are seeing for our US and global
fundamental and mathematical investment strategies from investors in Singapore and Southeast Asia,”
said Erich Gerth, Chief Executive Officer of Janus Capital International Limited, the firms’
international division. “It also demonstrates our commitment to building our business in Singapore,
which is one of our largest markets outside the United States and a key target for our expansion plans.”
Earlier this year Janus Capital strengthened its Asia sales force with the appointment of Hong Kong-
based Margaret Ang, Co-Head of Janus Capital’s Asia Pacific ex Japan region, to oversee business
development for institutional investors in Southeast Asia. Ang joined Janus Capital from UOB Asset
Management Limited where she was Senior Director and Head of Institutional Sales. She came to Janus
with more than 20 years experience in the investment and pensions industry.
“With the growth of Singapore as a regional private banking hub and financial centre, establishing a
representative office is an important step in our efforts to deepen our relationships with investors in
Singapore and Southeast Asia,” said Chang.
According to the Monetary Authority of Singapore the asset management industry in Singapore grew by
24% in 2006 to S$900 billion. Meanwhile, the number of high-net-worth investors in Singapore last
year jumped 21%, one of the highest growth rates in the world, according to the Merrill Lynch Cap
Gemini 2006 report.
