Mr. Tong’s unique combination of in-depth experience of both the insurance industry and global capital markets makes him perfectly suited to lead this critical initiative for the firm.
Rothsay Consulting, an independent global asset management firm, licensed to carry out investment advisory and asset management services, is pleased to announce that Run Tong has joined the firm as Managing Director, Head of Insurance Solutions. This appointment is the latest Rothsay Consulting has made to its senior ranks this year, forming part of the firm’s strategy to selectively add highly experienced professionals to its platform as it continues to build on the successes it has already achieved globally.
This will enable Rothsay Consulting to capture the significant growth opportunities for independent, specialized financial services firms resulting from the ongoing reshaping of the financial services industry, where insurers play a central part.
Run Tong, who has over 20 years of combined insurance industry and global capital markets experience, was most recently Managing Director, Head of International Credit Research and Insurance Credit Analyst at a top Investment Bank.
Tsui Lingyu, Chief Executive Officer and co-founder of Rothsay Consulting commented: “We are planning to provide un-conflicted advice and delivering bespoke solutions and best in class execution to our future insurance and re-insurance clients for their balance sheet and portfolio management requirements is a cornerstone of our global capital markets and advisory strategy.
Run’s extensive insight into insurance companies’ asset and liability dynamics as well as senior issuer and investor relationships are invaluable, and we look forward to his leadership to help sustain the firm’s successful growth trajectory”.
Mr. Tong commented: “The opportunity to complement Rothsay Consulting’s global sales and trading and advisory platform with insurance capabilities is an exciting one. Globally insurers have so far had a good crisis, although being very large owners of assets and managers of long dated liabilities continues to test the sector.”
