MSCI has appointed Eric Yun as the new leader of its Korea office.

Yun will focus on expanding the MSCI's client base in Korea and drive its sales growth in the local market, the U.S. finance firm said. He took on the new role as the head of Korea client coverage at MSCI on Aug. 1.

After studying economics at Seoul National University, Yun received a master's degree in business administration at the University of Chicago. He is best known for his broad range of financial experiences, having worked at major investment banks and hedge funds, including Credit Suisse, UBS, BNP Paribas and LK Asset Management, for about two decades.

"More and more Korean investors are expanding their investment portfolio into global assets, and they need more trustworthy and reliable solution providers to achieve their investment goals," Yun said. "We are excited to offer advanced services to Korean customers who have a high interest in MSCI's industry-leading investment solutions."

Kazuya Nagasawa, head of APAC client coverage at MSCI, also spoke highly of Yun's broad experiences in the industry.

"MSCI is committed to extending its businesses in the Korean market whose growth potential remains high," he said. "We are confident that Yun will play a pivotal role in driving client-centered business strategies, while at the same time achieving sales growth and widening new business opportunities in the Korean market."

Yun's priority will be on leading the Korea coverage team and coming up with specific strategies to meet demands from Korean clients. He will collaborate with Yuzo Ogai, head of MSCI's North Asia client coverage.
