Experience 16 Years
Yongtao is responsible for discovering and analyzing companies primarily within the Health Care and Consumer Discretionary sectors in support of GW&K’s emerging markets strategies. He is also a member of the firm’s Investment Committee.
Yongtao started at GW&K in 2019 when Trilogy Global Advisors’ emerging markets team joined the firm. At Trilogy, he was an emerging markets analyst. Previously, Yongtao worked as a director of research heading the Greater China Basic Materials sector with Bank of America Merrill Lynch. He also worked as a senior research analyst at AllianceBernstein where he covered the China Basic Materials sector to support the company’s global portfolios.
Yongtao received his BA from Dong Hua University in Shanghai, China and his MS in Environmental Engineering from Carnegie Mellon University. He also earned an MBA from the University of Michigan Ross Business School. Yongtao is fluent in Chinese.
I believe that the biggest value I bring to GW&K comes from my experience on both the sell side and buy side of the Asia Pacific Market and my deep knowledge and familiarity of China. Together they help me add valuable insights to the emerging markets team and investment process.
