Aberdeen Asset Management’s investment director of Asian equities Chou Chong is leaving the firm at the end of the year.

Chong has decided to leave the asset management industry, says Aberdeen in a statement.

“While we are saddened by Chou’s departure after a long and successful career with Aberdeen, we are confident in our highly-skilled investment team, which remains an industry leader in Asian equity investment experience and is led by Flavia Cheong, head of Asian equities,” says a statement from the asset manager.

In 2008 Chong stepped down from his role as head of pan-European equities at Aberdeen after more than five years with the company, as he decided to return to Singapore for personal reasons. He remained with the company in its Singapore office.

Chong joined Aberdeen in 1994 and has also worked in the company’s Sydney office.
