Western Asset Management promotes Lian

Western Asset Management has promoted Chia-Liang Lian to co-head of its emerging market debt team as part of a two-year succession plan.

Mr Lian will work alongside Keith Gardner at the Legg Mason subsidiary in his new role from April. Mr Gardner has been with Western Asset for 22 years and intends to retire in April 2016.

The group said Mr Lian had expanded the company’s Asia ex Japan investment team and this move would “create a two-year succession plan for the emerging markets debt investment effort”.
