Janus Capital International has appointed Chris Justice as chief operating officer and head of Europe.

In the London-based role, Justice will develop the group’s business strategy across the EMEA region.

Previously he was based in Hong Kong as head of strategic initiatives for APAC and EMEA, and will continue to report to the firm’s president Augustus Cheh.

Prior to joining Janus in 2013, Justice was managing director of Quam (Hong Kong), where he led a team of research analysts and asset managers providing non-discretionary portfolio advice to high-net-worth and retail investors. He began his career in finance with Bankers Trust Company.

Commenting on the appointment, Cheh says:“Chris is a key part of our EMEA business strategy at an important time for Janus Capital International, as we build upon a number of strong growth years across both our retail and institutional franchises.”
