Asset manager Janus Henderson Investors has appointed a former BlackRock executive as its new global head of distribution.
Suzanne Cain will join Janus Henderson effective 20 May, and will be responsible for the firm’s global sales and product strategy for both institutional and retail channels, and will oversee global marketing and lead client service across the firm’s business worldwide.
In addition, she will be a member of the executive committee and will be based in Denver.
Ms Cain was most recently at BlackRock where she served as US and global head of institutional clients for iShares.
Prior to joining BlackRock, she was head of the institutional client group and head of structured credit and structured finance sales at Deutsche Bank for EMEA from 2010 to 2017.
“Suzanne’s appointment follows an extensive review of high-calibre industry professionals. She brings deep global leadership experience, an ability to operate strategically and an excellent track record of success in product innovation, building product capabilities and leading global sales initiatives,” said Janus Henderson chief executive Dick Weil.
“As our primary focus remains on delivering exceptional client service and long-term successful investment outcomes, I am confident in Suzanne’s ability as a transformative leader to continue to drive forward our new growth priorities and global distribution efforts.”
