State Street Global Advisors (SSGA) has appointed Rory Tobin as head of European distribution.

Based in London, this newly created role will report to Mike Karpik, head of SSGA for Europe, the Middle East and Africa (EMEA).

Tobin will be responsible for leading and developing the European institutional and intermediary distribution business. He joins from Barclays Wealth & Investment Management, where was chief executive officer of Barclays Asset Management and global head of the investments and solutions group.
“We have created this role to mirror investor needs and regulatory changes within the European distribution landscape,” says Karpik. “Rory has a wealth of experience and expertise in strategy and investment solutions. This appointment reflects our commitment to growing our distribution business to better service client needs, as well as our goal of expanding our foothold in the European institutional and intermediary markets.”
Before joining Barclays, Tobin worked at BlackRock, where he was head of international iShares. Tobin started out at BlackRock as head of the global index and markets group, later becoming CEO of iShares EMEA and co-CEO of Global iShares. Tobin has also worked at JPMorgan as global co-head of European cash and equity products, and at Goldman Sachs as head of US equities for EMEA.
