PGIM Real Estate has strengthened its Asia-Pacific investment team with the appointment of Eileen Yong as executive director and deputy portfolio manager for its Asia core strategy.
Based in Singapore, Yong will be responsible for managing the firm’s Asia core strategy, which aims to deliver defensive total returns with a steady income by investing primarily in core, income-producing assets in the more liquid and mature markets across Asia-Pacific.
She will report to Vincent Chew, executive director and portfolio manager of the Asia core strategy. Yong steps in for Olivia Chow, portfolio manager, who will be moving internally to take on expanded portfolio management responsibilities in the region.
Yong has more than 20 years of experience in real estate equity and debt investments in Asia-Pacific. Most recently, she was senior fund manager at LaSalle Investment Management leading the strategy, construction and investment decisions for two Asian mandates. Prior to that, she was a vice-president at Aviva Investors’ real estate multi-manager team for eight years.
PGIM Real Estate is the real estate investment and financing business of PGIM, the US$1.2 trillion global investment management business of Prudential Financial.
