GLOBAL - Insight Investment has appointed Mark Ahern, currently head of the institutional client service team, to the newly created role of head of international business development (excluding Europe).
The new role includes the management of Insight’s recently launched marketing operation in Japan, and is in line with its aim of expanding beyond the UK market.
Andrew Welch, formerly a liability driven investment specialist and senior client relationship manager at Merrill Lynch Investment Managers succeeds Ahern.
Effective March 1, Welch will head up the institutional client service team, reporting to Sarah Aitken, Insight’s head of institutional business.
Commenting on the appointment, Aitken said: “We are seeing significant opportunities for us to expand our business outside the UK, building upon our ongoing success in the UK. Mark’s appointment, coupled with the recent appointment of Denise Saber as head of European business development, helps position us to capture growth opportunities outside the UK.”
