With more than 20 years experience, Terry Pan has enjoyed playing a role in the evolution of the fund management sector.
“Apart from witnessing the strong growth of the business, I treasured the opportunity to take part in the significant developments of the fund management industry in Asia,” said Pan, who is CEO for Greater China, Southeast Asia and Korea at Invesco Hong Kong Ltd.
Pan started his career in asset management in 1994, working in a number of roles – including client advisory, investment communications and marketing – at a global investment bank.
He took a break for a few years in 2000, when he launched one of the first online trading portals in Hong Kong, before returning to his previous employer.
In 2015, Pan joined Invesco, where he is responsible for the firm’s Greater China business as well as in Southeast Asia and other emerging markets.
“I enjoy providing strategic leadership and driving strong execution of Invesco’s strategies to further establish our leadership position across key markets in the region,” he said.
Invesco Hong Kong was established in 1972 and now provides around 60 retail funds encompassing equity, bond, balanced and money market vehicles. The company’s products continually evolve to meet the shifting demands of the local market.
Pension management, for example, has been a recent focus, Pan explained, adding that the firm has an advantage thanks to its long experience in this area. “We started serving the retirement needs of Hong Kong institutions in 1977, which gives us a thorough understanding of institutional pension needs with a diversified range of retirement products.”
He added that technology, demographics and markets are constantly changing, “so the status quo is not an option.”
“At Invesco, we never settle for average and we are committed to finding new, better ways to operate and strengthen our performance,” said Pan.
Invesco Hong Kong joined the Chamber in 2001. Pan pointed to the benefits of events including industry seminars and conferences as well as HKGCC’s large and diverse network of businesspeople.
“These are all useful opportunities for us to connect with different stakeholders in Hong Kong, ranging from long-established conglomerates to small- and medium-sized companies,” he said. “These connections help us understand the different needs of these organizations, for example around investments and MPF solutions.”
