BNP Paribas Securities Services (BNP Paribas) today announced that it has appointed Madhu Gayer as head of Investment Reporting and Performance (IRP) in Asia-Pacific, a newly created position based in Singapore.
Reporting to Mostapha Tahiri, head of asset and fund services in Asia-Pacific and Nicolas Le Clech, global head of IRP, Mr Gayer is responsible for driving business development of the bank’s performance reporting and risk analytics solutions among new and existing institutional clients in the region. He leads a team of more than 20 specialists and will articulate and roll-out the bank’s IRP product strategy.
BNP Paribas’ IRP service helps institutional investors better understand and manage their portfolios by enabling a complete view of their investments. This includes calculation and reporting capabilities around ex-post risk, portfolio returns, tailor-made attribution and ex-ante market risk based on portfolio composition.
Mr Gayer has more than 15 years’ experience servicing a varied institutional client base across Asia Pacific. He has worked in Australia, Hong Kong and Singapore, held banking front and middle office positions and led teams responsible for portfolio and investment risk, and analytical services. He joins from Northern Trust where he was most recently a senior vice president and regional head of investment risk and analytical services for Asia-Pacific.
Commenting on Mr Gayer’s appointment, Mostapha Tahiri said: “We’re delighted to welcome Madhu to BNP Paribas, who brings an in-depth understanding of the requirements of institutional investors in Asia-Pacific.
“Asset managers and asset owners in Asia-Pacific are focused on securing the best possible oversight of their investment strategies against a backdrop of volatile markets. They need greater transparency, particularly around alternative assets, and strong risk management as they target smarter beta, risk-adjusted returns and greater governance on their investment portfolios.
“Having worked closely with central banks and sovereign wealth funds in the region, Madhu is very well placed to help clients navigate these industry changes,” concluded Mr Tahiri.
