Investec names Trilli to its growing Americas sales team

Investec Asset Management said it has expanded its Americas sales team, with the hiring of  Michelle Trilli as sales director, to oversee the South Africa and UK-based asset manager’s mutual fund business in the North Eastern United States and Canada.

Trilli, pictured, comes to Investec from Pioneer Investments, where she had been vice president for the US offshore – Northeast and Canada regions.

In a statement, Investec said the appointment would supports its adviser-facing business as its “international footprint and global client base continue to expand”.

Richard Garland, managing director, global adviser and head of the Americas adviser business for Investec, said Trilli would be bringing with her considerable experience as well as knowledge of financial advisers in the markets she’ll now be rsponsible for.

He said one of her focuses would be on managing client demand for such income products in the Investec range as its Global Multi Asset Income Fund, as well as for such defensively-positioned equity products as the Investec Global Franchise and Global Quality Equity Income funds.

Investec Asset Management is an independently managed subsidiary of Investec Group, which is listed on the London and Johannesburg stock exchanges, and is headquartered in London and South Africa.

The asset management arm of Investec was founded in 1991, and at the end of December was looking after more than US$114bn on behalf of third party clients.
