Who’s Moving Where In Wealth Management – Credit Suisse, Tishman Speyer

The latest moves and appointments for senior roles for Asia-Pacific wealth management.

Credit Suisse 
Credit Suisse has appointed Matt Jin as executive director and relationship manager, based in Hong Kong, reporting to Shin-Yi Jeng, team leader for the China market.

Jin (pictured), who has over 20 years of experience in investment banking, is making a transition to private banking to continue servicing his clients in their business succession and wealth planning needs, the firm said in a statement.

Prior to joining Credit Suisse, Jin headed up the investment and financing team in CMBC International Holdings Ltd for five years. Before that, he worked at Mirae Asset Securities for over 10 years as the team head of Greater China coverage in investment banking.

Jin is a post graduate of Hong Kong University; he also graduated with an EMBA from Cheung Kong Graduate School of Business.

It is interesting that, even as UBS is taking over Credit Suisse, the Credit Suisse side of the organisation continues to make hires as a separate entity. See another example here.

Tishman Speyer
Tishman Speyer, an owner, developer, operator and investment manager of real estate which is present in 33 key markets across the United States, Europe, Asia and Latin America, has appointed real estate investment professional Jerry Hyunjae Park as senior director of acquisitions for its recently-established office in Seoul, South Korea, to take effect in mid-June

Park will help the firm build out a diverse portfolio of assets in the Asia Pacific region beyond its already-extensive portfolio in China and India. He will report to managing director, Graham Mackie, who was appointed in June 2022 to spearhead Tishman Speyer’s Asia Pacific expansion beyond its operations in China and India.

Park, a native of South Korea, has spent more than a decade in real estate investment, development, operations, consulting and capital raising in the region, the firm said in a statement. In his new role, he will source and execute new investment opportunities across a wide range of asset classes, including the office, retail, industrial, life sciences and multifamily sectors.

Over the past five years, Park served as executive director for acquisitions and development at D&D Investment, a wholly owned subsidiary of SK D&D, which he co-founded and helped grow into a top-tier real estate manager. 

Prior to D&D Investment, Park served as a global portfolio manager for National Pension Service of Korea. Previously, he also served as a fund manager at Mirae Asset Global Investment and a senior associate at PricewaterhouseCoopers Korea.

“Having spent the past year building out our Asia Pacific platform, we are now actively pursuing our growth strategy in the region,” said Mackie. “Given his deep roots and strong local relationships, along with his wealth of experience across a wide spectrum of investment vehicles and real estate sectors, Jerry is the right person to help us source and secure promising acquisition and new development opportunities,” he continued.

Tishman Speyer, which also recently appointed Adrian Lee as a senior director in its Singapore office, is working to add investment professionals to source acquisitions for its offices in Japan and Australia. In each market, Tishman Speyer said it will be focusing on core, value-added and opportunistic investments, as well as brown-to-green office refurbishments in the region’s gateway cities.
