Schroders has appointed Peter Arnold, senior private assets distribution head to drive the firm's sales effort in this key asset class and meet the specialist needs of investors globally.
Arnold will lead Schroders' Alternative Sales Unit, which was established last year and focuses on the distribution of Schroders' Private Assets investment offering.
He will report into John Troiano, Schroders' global head of Distribution, and Georg Wunderlin, Schroders new global head of Private Assets, who joined the firm earlier this month.
Arnold was most recently the global head of International Fund Distribution at Citi, specialising in private debt, real estate and global infrastructure, where he was responsible for the origination and distribution of third-party private assets products to institutional investors globally. He will join Schroders in early June.
