Hong Kong-based Johnson Stokes & Masters has recruited a managed investment partner from Blake Dawson Waldron.
Effie Vasilopoulos will join the firm in February as a consultant. She is expected to sit Hong Kong Law Society exams in October that will allow her to practise domestic law, at which point she will be admitted to the partnership.
The appointment is in response to the significant increase in fund work in Hong Kong, where earlier this month the first-ever mandatory company pension programme was introduced.
Johnson Stokes already acts for three of the biggest fund providers: HSBC, AIA Jardine Flemming and Fidelity.
Part of Vasilopoulos' role will be to win new work. There are currently 20 providers, although considerable consolidation is expected.
Vasilopoulos will bring clients with her, many of whom are looking to invest in China.
