Schroders has appointed Guy Henriques as country head for the UK business, reporting to John Troiano, global head of Distribution.
Henriques will return from Japan, this month, where he has held the position of country head of Japan from 2012 to August 2016.
Prior to moving to Japan, Henriques was global head of Official Institutions in London and then in Hong Kong, where he was also responsible for the asset manager’s Asia Pacific institutional business.
He joined Schroders in 2006. In addition to Henriques taking responsibility for the UK intermediary and institutional channels, he will also lead the Latin America business across Argentina, Brazil, Chile and Mexico.
In addition Robin Stoakley, currently managing director UK Intermediary, will hand over the management of the UK intermediary business to James Rainbow, head of UK Financial Institutions and Strategic Accounts and Phil Middleton, head of UK Intermediary Business Development who will become co-heads.
Both Rainbow and Middleton will report to Guy Henriques. Stoakley will maintain a senior role within the firm overseeing our relationships with global financial clients and developing our growing South African presence. He will report directly to John Troiano, global head of Distribution.
“The changing dynamics of the UK market place and continued convergence of both the intermediary and institutional channels, specifically in the defined contribution and insurance areas, has meant that now is the right time for our business to appoint a country head for the UK that will lead and grow both channels,” Troiano said.
