Jupiter Asset Management has appointed Peter Swarbreck as Head of Jupiter’s Asia Business
Peter, who joined Jupiter in April, has extensive asset management experience, most recently as Head of BlackRock’s Hong Kong office, with additional responsibility for the Company’s largest clients in Asia. He has also held senior business development and client relationship management roles with Mercury Asset Management and Merrill Lynch Investment Managers before the merger with BlackRock.
Peter, who is based in Jupiter’s recently-opened Hong Kong office, is responsible for driving growth in Jupiter’s business in the region, working with Tony Yu, who joined Jupiter as Sales Director (Hong Kong) in January and David Conway, who has worked as Jupiter’s Sales Director in Singapore since 2009.

Peter Swarbreck said: “Jupiter’s reputation in the UK, together with its world-class product set, make for an exciting building block for the Company’s development in Asia. I am looking forward to working with the team to achieve our growth potential in these markets.”
