Threadneedle names global head of consultants
GLOBAL - Threadneedle Investments has named Morley's Angus Scrace as global head of consultants and investment specialists, a new role.
Scrace, who will report to UK distribution head Madeline Forrester, was formerly head of consultant relations at Morley Fund Management, Threadneedle said.
He's also worked at Fidelity Investments and Coopers & Lybrand.
"I am delighted to have Angus on board as he will bring a wealth of talent and experience to Threadneedle, where we have a well-established client base in UK equities, fixed income and property," Forrester said.
"He joins at an exciting time as we reinforce our expertise in liability driven investment and global equities - the latter where we've delivered a strong three-year track record and recently won our first mandate from a local UK government authority for this asset class.
"He will be instrumental in helping us to seize the opportunities in existing channels, while widening our distribution, particularly into the pan-European institutional arena."
