Global asset management firm T. Rowe Price has appointed Jacquie Arnott to lead its wholesale and family office distribution for Australia and New Zealand.
Arnott would be responsible for leading the firm’s continued growth in the wholesale and family office distribution channels, which included the private banks.
She had over 12 years’ experience at global financial institutions in various relationship management roles looking after ultra and high net worth, research and intermediary clients.
Prior to joining T. Rowe Price in February 2015, she worked for Julius Baer Private Bank and Merrill Lynch Wealth Management in London and Los Angeles.
She would continue to report to Jonathon Ross, head of intermediary Australia and New Zealand and remained based in Sydney.
“Greater demand is being seen by this segment for more selective exposure and risk management amidst these times of accelerated change and unprecedent volatility,” Ross said.
“Our key focus is to ensure wholesale and family office clients have access to T. Rowe Price’s global investment expertise across our equity, fixed income and multi-asset capabilities that align with their long-term objectives.
“Jacquie has demonstrated strong experience in the wholesale and family office distribution channel and is an ideal candidate to lead this important growth area for the firm.
“Her extensive knowledge and experience in this important client segment make her an ideal candidate to deepen our existing relationships and drive new partnerships.”
