JP Morgan Asset Management’s head of Asia fixed income, Stephen Chang, has left the company after 13 years, with Shaw Yann Ho being named as his replacement.

Chang, who has 22 years of market experience, was named on four funds across global bonds, Asia Pacific bonds, Hong Kong dollar bonds and mixed asset funds at the time of his departure.

Shaw Yann has worked alongside Chang on several funds and was most recently head of Asian credit. She has been with the group since 2011.

JPM AM said the transition to Shaw Yann would be aided by the team-based approach the team has adopted, with the investment integrity of the funds being retained as they are handed over. It added that JPM AM’s commitment to Asia fixed income remains strong.

It was not revealed whether Chang intends to stay within asset management following his departure.
