David Bouchoucha, deputy head of the institutional business line, says: “Our segment sales heads play a vital role in our new Institutional sales organisation, providing the various types of institutional investor with the product, service and support that they need.
“Marc and Anne are vastly experienced in their areas and their solutions‐driven approach to sales will be of great benefit to our clients. Meanwhile, Katherine has proven her ability to lead and develop RFP teams in her previous roles, and is a great addition to the company. All three appointments are further evidence of our desire to provide a top‐level service to our institutional clients.”
