NIKKO ASSET MANAGEMENT
Angela McLean joined Nikko Asset Management in October 2014 from
Ignis Asset Management.
Nikko is one of Japan’s fastest growing
asset management groups and has
recently been recruiting for its London
office which opened back in 1987. McLean
took the decision to move down from
Scotland last year to take up her new role.
She is a product of the respected
academy of dealers who started their
careers at Ignis Asset Management,
originally mentored by Betsy Anderson.
Between 2000 and 2005, she was a
support analyst at Ignis, joining the dealing
desk proper in the August of 2005, trading
global long short equities and derivatives.
McLean has broader appeal outside of
trading, however, having previously held a
variety of roles outside of the dealing desk
during her 20-year long career to date.
Her experience in treasury and investor
services complements her trading expertise
and is sure to add firepower to her
employability as her career progresses in the
years ahead. n
