Christina Au-Yeung

Head of investment management services
Morgan Stanley Private Wealth Management Asia

It is a privilege to accept this award on behalf of Morgan Stanley Private Wealth Management Asia.

I am fortunate to bear witness to the impressively evolving dynamics of the private banking and investment management business in Asia and am honoured to enable the increasingly sophisticated investment needs of our ultra high net worth clients.

At Morgan Stanley, we approach the pursuit of excellence with curiosity and humility, inspired by our brilliant colleagues and distinguished business partners around the world, embracing the disrupting forces of the next generation to innovate our platform.

What we said

“Christina Au-Yeung has enjoyed a remarkable ascent since joining Morgan Stanley Private Wealth Management Asia (Morgan Stanley PWM Asia) just under six years ago. Leveraging on her earlier experience in fund investments and advisory, the London School of Economics and Political Science graduate began her career at the Wall Street bank by focusing on alternatives before rising to take overall responsibility for Investment Management Services (IMS) in the region,” said Daniel Shane, editor of Asian Private Banker.

“Under her watchful eye, the IMS platform at Morgan Stanley PWM Asia has gone from strength to strength. Aside from boosting the breadth and depth of the overall offering – whether more differentiated and outperforming private markets and hedge funds solutions to its Advisory Portfolio Management business – Au-Yeung’s tenure at IMS has coincided with an upward trajectory in AUM.

“Au-Yeung’s integral role to Morgan Stanley PWM Asia’s investment platform was cemented in early 2023 when she was named the sole head of IMS for the region. Outside of investments, she plays a key role in the bank’s fledgling regional next-generation programme, is a commanding on-stage presence at the Annual Global Alpha Investment Conference in Hong Kong, and is a keen advocate of women’s achievements in the industry.

“For these reasons and more, Asian Private Banker is delighted to name Christina Au-Yeung as its second-ever Rising Star of the Year at the Awards for Distinction 2023.”
