NH-Amundi Asset Management CEO nominee Bae Young-hoon
Founded in 2003, NH-Amundi is a subsidiary of holding firm NongHyup Financial Group, which owns a 70 percent stake. Paris-based Amundi Asset Management holds 30 percent. NH-Amundi is currently the seventh-largest asset management firm in Korea by assets under management, which stands at 36 trillion won ($30.4 billion).
Bae started his career at National Agricultural Cooperative Federation in 1985 and had been working at NongHyup Bank until he joined NH-Amundi in 2017 to head its marketing division.
He earned a master’s degree in business from Hanyang University and a bachelor’s degree from Chonnam National University.
Bae will replace Park Kyu-hee, who stepped down as he was named for the audit committee of NACF in June 2019. NACF wholly owns NongHyup Financial.
