Janus Henderson Investors announced the appointment of two new top positions for its distribution in continental Europe and Latin America.
Steven de Vries appointed for the role of head of Global Financial Institutions with immediate effect. At the same time, Ignacio de la Maza is appointed as head of continental Europe Wholesale & Latin America.
The appointments strengthen the market positioning of Janus Henderson Investors in continental Europe and Latin America in important areas of global customer relationships and cooperation with customers from the wholesale sector. Both Steven de Vries and Ignacio de la Maza will report to Greg Jones, head of distribution, EMEA & Latin America.
Ignacio de la Maza will continue to lead the seven-member sales team for Latin America and the Iberian Peninsula in addition to its new responsibility for the wholesale business in continental Europe and Latin America.
Greg Jones, head of Distribution, EMEA & Latin America, said: “We look forward to the expansion of our business with these two appointments. In the mature markets where we are active, it is crucial that we consolidate and deepen our customer relationships with financial institutions, consultants and intermediaries and remain an attractive partner. After the merger with Janus Henderson is completed, and with the fact that at least a quarter of our employees are engaged in sales, we hope to strengthen our position in the market and expand our customer base.”
