T. Rowe Price Promotes Relationship Manager to Lead Wholesale and Family Office Distribution for Australia and New Zealand

Global asset management firm T. Rowe Price today announced the appointment of Jacquie Arnott to lead its Wholesale and Family Office Distribution for Australia and New Zealand, effective February 22. The appointment underscores T. Rowe Price’s long-term focus on providing its diversified client base with an expanding range of investment strategies.

 

Arnott has over 12 years of experience at global financial institutions in a range of 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.

 

In her new role, Arnott is responsible for leading the firm’s continued growth in the wholesale and family office distribution channels, including the private banks. She continues to report to Jonathon Ross, Head of Intermediary Australia and New Zealand and remains based in Sydney.

 

Ross commented, “Greater demand is being seen by this segment for more selective exposure and risk management amidst these times of accelerated change and unprecedent volatility. 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.”

 

He added, “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.”

 

T. Rowe Price currently offers six Australian Unit Trusts to wholesale investors in Australia and New Zealand, providing access to the firm’s global equities, Australian equities and global fixed income strategies. The firm also offers its global range of investment strategies to institutional clients across a range of vehicles.
