GLOBAL - Morgan Stanley Investment Management (MSIM) has appointed James Dilworth business head for Europe, Middle East and Africa (EMEA).
MSIM said the appointment reflected the “growing significance” of the EMEA region.
“Building our EMEA business is a key component of our overall strategy,” commented Owen Thomas. “We have made good recent progress in laying the foundations for future growth by investing in our EMEA business.”
Dulworth and a yet-to-be appointed head for Asia will replace outgoing international business head Michael Green.
Dilworth joins from Goldman Sachs Asset Management (GSAM), where he was most recently GSAM German head. Prior to that, he was responsible for GSAM’s business development in Northern Europe.
Dilworth will be responsible for all MSIM’s activities in the region and will report to both Owen Thomas, president of MSIM, and Jonathan Chenevix-Trench, chairman of Morgan Stanley International.
He will also sit on the MSIM senior management committee and the Morgan Stanley European management committee.
