Walsh joins Standard Life Investments from BlackRock where she was managing director – head of international marketing. She will report to head of investments Rod Paris.
Paris says: “Since its inception over ten years ago Standard Life Investments has steadily increased its product range, its expertise in different asset classes, knowledge of international markets and its global reach. In the first half of 2009 nearly 80 per cent of the total net new inflows of £3.1bn came from outside the UK.
“We believe there is tremendous potential to accelerate this global growth and that Nuala’s extensive experience in marketing and advertising, coupled with her strong knowledge of the asset management industry both in the UK and overseas, will see an ever increasing number of clients accessing our range of institutional and retail products.”
