HONG KONG, September 8, 2015 – Monument Group, a leading independent alternative investment fund placement agent, announced today its continued expansion of their presence in Asia with the hiring of three professionals to join Managing Director Niklas K. Amundsson in its Hong Kong office. Mr. Albert Jun, Director, Ms. Sabrina Meng, Senior Associate and Ms. Kris Ho, Operations Manager. Monument Group’s Asia team represents five nationalities, fluent in Mandarin, Korean, Japanese and English, based in their Hong Kong and Tokyo offices.
The Hong Kong team will be based at Monument Group’s new permanent offices in Two Exchange Square, the hub of the local private equity community.
Niklas Amundsson joined Monument Group in January 2015 as a Managing Director to help the firm expand its Asia footprint. Before joining Monument Group, Niklas spent over seven years at MVision, most recently as a Partner in the Hong Kong office.
“Niklas has extensive fund placement experience and market knowledge that will assist Monument Group’s successful expansion into Asia through enhanced dialogue with the investor and General Partner communities,” said Bob Mast, Managing Director.
Albert Jun joined as a Director with marketing responsibility focused on Korean and other Asian investors. He was most recently Vice President and Team Leader of the Fund Placement Division for NH Investment & Securities (f.k.a. Woori Investment & Securities) in Korea.
Sabrina Meng joined as a Senior Associate within Monument Group’s analytics team. She comes to the firm from Emerald Hill Capital Partners, where she had worked since 2011.
As Operations Manager, Kris Ho will have a variety of client service and office management responsibilities. She joins Monument Group from MVision, where she held a similar position since 2010.
“Our team expansion will allow us to introduce our clients to a broader group of Asia-based investors, as well as create access for investors worldwide to many high quality Asia-based funds” said Amundsson. “The Asian investor market is growing at a healthy pace and many investors are becoming more global in their investment considerations, so we need local and deep relationships to capitalize on both of these opportunities.”
In addition to Hong Kong, Monument Group has offices in Boston, London and Tokyo.
