T. Rowe Price Australia has tapped its vice-president for relationship management to lead its wholesale and family office offering.
Jacquie Arnott will head up wholesale and family office distribution for Australia and New Zealand. She will report to Jonathon Ross, head of intermediary for Australia and New Zealand and be based in Sydney.
“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,” Mr Ross said.
Ms Arnott has more than 12 years’ experience in relationship management roles looking after high- and ultra-high-net-worth, research, and intermediary clients. She joined T. Rowe Price in 2015, prior to which she held roles at Julius Baer Private Bank and Merrill Lynch Wealth Management in London and Los Angeles.
“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,” Mr Ross said.
