Schroders hires head of strategy for MAPS


Schroders has appointed Esther Nass-Fetzmann as head of strategy in the firm’s Multi Asset Investments and Portfolio Solutions product team.

In the newly created role, Nass-Fetzmann will focus on the European market and report to the asset manager’s head of UK and Europe Product & Manager Solutions, Henriette Bergh.

Nass-Fetzmann joins the investment manager from BlackRock where she most recently worked as director and head of UK iShares ETF sales.

Schroders head of multi-asset investments and portfolio solutions Nicolaas Marais says: “I am very pleased that Esther has chosen to join MAPS. Her commercial and product experience is invaluable as we continue to build our European Multi-asset Investments and Portfolio Solutions business.”

In August, Schroders hired Chris Hsia as product manager and Mei Huang as a quantitative analyst within the MAPS team.

Earlier this month, Schroders’ veteran fund manager Rosemary Banyard said she is to exit the firm to pursue “other opportunities”.

Banyard, who has been at Schroders for 17 years, will continue at the group until 31 March 2016.
