UK - Baring Asset Management has appointed Hilary Denby-Jones as group head of marketing communications and product development.
She will report to Peter Wolton, chief executive of the investment management group division.
Denby-Jones has worked for BAM since 1993 in several roles including head of marketing in Japan, and client services director for specialist equity accounts in the UK and Europe.
Most recently, she was head of product development in London, and will retain a focus on the product development across BAM’s institutional and mutual fund product ranges in the UK, Europe, Far East and the US.
Commenting, Denby-Jones, said: “Our performance in equities, fixed income and balanced fund had significantly improved due to a tightening up of investment processes.
“Work that was undertaken in the latter part of 2001 is really starting to show in the numbers. We really want to get this message across to pension trustees, intermediaries and private clients.”
