Invesco, one of the world’s leading asset managers today announces that Kate Dwyer has been promoted to Head of UK Distribution, reporting to Oliver Bilal, Head of EMEA Distribution.
Kate was formerly Head of Passives UK at Invesco, having joined following the acquisition of Source, the European ETF provider, in 2018.
Invesco also announces that Sachin Bhatia is appointed as Head of UK Pensions & EMEA Consultant Relations; Charles Moussier as Head of EMEA Insurance Client Solutions and Joel Marques as Head of UK Insurance Distribution.
Richard Glenn will take on a new role as Head of EMEA Private Markets Distribution. Invesco believes there is a strong client demand for alternative strategies in infrastructure, private equity and debt, real estate as well as fixed income, so dedicated resources are required as this part of the business continues to flourish.
Oliver Bilal commented: “It is strategically important that we provide dedicated resources and focus in areas of our business that can offer our clients the service and innovation they require.
“We are seeing continued client demand for private market capabilities, tailored investment solutions for retail and institutional clients, notably in personal savings products with decumulation features and generating different levels of income. In addition, we will continue to innovate the ETF and active thematic space, notably with an ESG tilt.
As a large organisation serving client segments all over the world, we have to continue to innovate and develop our competitive proposition, not only by developing and aligning our internal talent to their areas of strength, but as an organisation we have to remain agile to change. We will achieve this by fostering partnerships with private banks, wealth managers and insurance companies and developing digital distribution channels in order to grow and serve our clients in the best way possible.
As a result of these changes, Alex Millar and Chris Evans will leave Invesco by mutual consent and Invesco wishes them every success in their future endeavours.
Bilal concluded: “I would like to thank Alex for his outstanding service and contribution to the growth and development of the Invesco EMEA business over many years and Chris for his role in developing our institutional business.”
