Atlantis Investment Management has appointed Yang Liu and Tony Jordan as co-chairmen of the London arm.

Liu is fund adviser to the Atlantis China fund and the Atlantis China fortune fund, having joined Atlantis in 2002.

Jordan is fund manager of the Atlantis Asian recovery fund and the Atlantis Asian opportunities fund, having joined Atlantis in 1996.

Both will retain their existing fund management responsibilities.

Atlantis says these appointments reflect the natural transition in the structure of the business over the past year and come just over a year since Peter Irving, founder and chief executive of Atlantis, died.

Irving vision was to establish a firm where the focus was on long term performance and where the fund managers could develop a business in their specialist area with a large degree of freedom.

The firm has continued grow with assets under management now at US$4.2bn.

Jordan says: “As founder of Atlantis, it was Peter’s drive and vision which helped make the business so successful. Yang and I are delighted to have been asked to take on the roles of co-chairmen and look forward to helping to grow the business further.”

Liu says: “Peter is still deeply missed within Atlantis but we are proud to have continued to grow and strengthen the business. The business model that Peter established has proved to be very successful and the future looks very bright for the firm.”
