UAE-based Holborn Assets, a global financial services group with major presence in Europe, Asia, the Middle East and Africa region, has appointed Jason Conlin as the new Hong Kong CEO while Greg Miller will be the new Vice President.

Robert Parker, the founder of Holborn Assets, said: "We are hugely excited by both appointments in Hong Kong. Holborn has once again demonstrated its capacity to attract the very best talent in the industry and with Conlin’s appointment we have shown the depth of experience available within our existing operations."

"We have and always will be a company that looks to promote internally, providing opportunities for growth and development to all our employees. This is another exciting chapter for Holborn and for the Hong Kong office," he added.

On his new role, Conlin said: "I’m looking forward to the role and excited by the potential with Holborn in the region. Harris has certainly given us a great platform on which to build and we all wish him every success in his new role."
