UBS Asset Management has appointed its head of the Australian real estate business, John Mowat to an additional role as head of real estate for APAC.
According to UBS, Mr Mowat delivers “extensive investment and client management experience” to the role, having joined the firm in 2010 and worked in both the EMEA and APAC regions during his 18-year career.
He has been a member of the AM Australia Management Forum for the past seven years, and stepped in to head the AM Australia and NZ business on an interim basis last year.
Mr Mowat will play a key role in contributing to UBS AM's momentum in the APAC region, which UBS said “further expands the firm's client franchise and managing money for top tier global institutional clients”.
His role at UBS also follows a five-year stint at AXA Real Estate, where he was an analyst in the United Kingdom, and associate in Hungary.
