Morningstar risk director to join JANA’s growing operational consulting team

Australia’s largest investment consulting firm, JANA, has announced its latest hire as it expands the Operational Consulting team with the appointment of Eleanor Cheng as consultant.

Ms Cheng joins JANA following an extensive career in risk management in financial services spanning the Asia-Pacific region, working most recently as Director of Risk Management (APAC) at Morningstar. With more than 15 years of experience in operational risk management, Ms Cheng has previously held roles at Royal Bank of Canada (RBC), NAB and PricewaterhouseCoopers.

Ms Cheng, who will be based in Sydney, is the latest addition to JANA’s growing Operational Consulting team, reporting to Senior Consultant, Jo Leaper. The role will see Ms Cheng bring technical expertise to JANA’s clients through enhanced governance and operational due diligence research and process.

“We are extremely excited to welcome Eleanor to the Operational Consulting team. Her experience working across many of APAC’s leading financial services companies brings insight and expertise that will benefit both JANA and our clients alike,” said Ms Leaper.

“Eleanor’s appointment is the latest development for our team as we continue to grow our due diligence and governance capabilities. Eleanor will play a key role in providing our clients with independent and thorough analysis of investment managers and advice on how to implement best-in-class governance frameworks.”

Ms Cheng said, “As Australia’s largest investment consultancy, governance and risk management is one of JANA’s utmost priorities. I am delighted to be joining the JANA team and to have the opportunity to work with their extensive client base in implementing robust risk management frameworks which can deliver consistent and reliable returns.”

Ms Cheng’s appointment concludes an impressive hiring quarter for JANA, marking the latest in a series of senior female hires, following Ann-Mary Rajanayagam’s new role as head of technology and operation last month.
