Schroders adds to North American distribution team

Wednesday, July 31, 2019
Opalesque Industry Update - Schroders today announced two senior hires as it continues to broaden its bench of channel specialists, enhancing their Defined Contribution capabilities and West Coast presence as part of the firm's continued strategy to grow its North American distribution platform. As part of this expansion, Deb Boyden joins as Head of US Defined Contribution and Anna Sayer joins as a Sales Director, Wealth Management Solutions.

Marc Brookman, Deputy CEO at Schroders, said:

"We are committed to growth in North America, and as part of our efforts it is essential that we have strong leadership on the West Coast in order to bring clients superior service and access to a variety of products across defined contribution, traditional asset classes and alternatives. Deb and Anna's deep experience and extensive relationships in their respective markets will help Schroders continue to position itself as a key provider in the region."

Deb brings to Schroders over two decades of experience in the defined contribution space and will be responsible for leading the strategy, development and execution of defined contribution products, as well as overseeing the firm's West Coast presence. She joins Schroders from Lazard Asset Management, where she was Senior Vice President, Defined Contribution, National Accounts, responsible for progressing the defined contribution footprint across the Western US. Deb is based in Oakland, Cal. and will report to Joel Schiffman, Head of US Defined Contribution and Insurance Sales.

Anna Sayer joins with a strong background in business development in financial services. She previously worked at PIMCO as a Senior Associate, Advisory Services focusing on the RIA and Family Office channel. Prior to PIMCO she worked at Insight Investment and Rogge Global Partners. Anna is based in San Diego, Cal. and will report to Jon Mackay, Head of Sales, Wealth Management Solutions.

These changes build on the firm's ongoing enhancements to the US distribution team to advance its North American growth strategy. In February, Schroders announced the hiring of Joel Schiffman as Head of US Defined Contribution and Insurance Sales, as well as the promotion of Tiffani Potesta to Head of Distribution Strategy in North America. In March, Marni Harp was promoted to Head of Institutional Consultant Relations for the US and Scott Garrett joined as an Institutional Sales Director, Taft-Hartley.
