Schroders adds to institutional distribution team

Monday, March 18, 2019
Opalesque Industry Update - Schroders today announced changes to its distribution team, as part of the firm's continued strategy to enhance its North American distribution platform. As part of these changes, Marni Harp has been promoted to Head of Institutional Consultant Relations for the U.S. and Scott Garrett has joined the firm as an Institutional Sales Director, focused on Taft-Hartley.

Marni brings over two decades of experience in the investment industry and will be responsible for overseeing the firm's relationships with local and global investment consultants and their institutional clients. She joined Schroders in August 2016 to lead coverage of investment consulting firms in the Western Region. Since joining, Marni has built strong internal partnerships which have translated into successful mandates, a higher profile with consultants, and a strong pipeline of opportunities. Marni is based in Los Angeles, Calif. and will report directly to Marc Brookman, Deputy CEO of North America.

Scott Garrett, CFA has joined the firm as an Institutional Sales Director responsible for new business development and relationship management for Taft-Hartley clients in the U.S. He joins from Systematic Financial Management, where he was a Senior Vice President and was responsible for developing and maintaining client relationships with Taft-Hartley, public funds, foundations and endowments and corporate plans. Scott will be based in Southern California and will report to Rock Wilkinson, Head of US Institutional Sales.

Marc Brookman, Deputy CEO, North America, Schroders, commented:

"We are committed to growth in North America, and ensuring we have the right team in place is a core component to that strategy. I am pleased to expand Marni's role as she has demonstrated great strength in developing and maintaining relationships with institutional clients and building our consultant advocacy. Scott Garrett is a welcome addition to the team and will further our commitment to strengthening our relationships with Taft-Hartley clients."

These changes build on last month's announcement of expanding the firm's U.S. distribution team to advance its North American growth strategy. In February, Schroders announced the hiring of Joel Schiffman as Head of U.S. Defined Contribution and Insurance Sales, as well as the promotion of Tiffani Potesta to Head of Distribution Strategy in North America.
