Barings appoints Katie Bowmar as head of product development

Baring Asset Management has hired Katie Bowmar as head of product development.

Bowmar joins from BlackRock where she spent over 10 years in product development. In her new role she will be responsible for product development and product management and will chair the product development committee.

In her previous role, Bowmar worked in international product development, covering all markets outside the U.S. across both retail and institutional clients.

She was also a member of the senior management product development committee and the derivatives operation group.

Barings head of sales, client service and business development George Harvey says: “We are delighted to announce this strong addition to our global team. Katie’s extensive experience of developing product in a multi-jurisdiction, multi-product environment will play an important role in taking our business forward in increasingly complex, global markets.”
