Manulife Asset Management names Marco Zanuso, CAIA, as Head of Distribution EMEA ex UK


Manulife Asset Management has appointed Marco Zanuso, CAIA, as Head of Distribution EMEA ex UK. Zanuso is based in London and reports to Claude Chene, Global Head of Distribution. 

In his new role, Zanuso oversees a team of distribution specialists building business relationships with institutional and wholesale clients.

"We are pleased to welcome Marco to Manulife Asset Management, as the leader of our business growth efforts in Europe, ex-UK, and the Middle East. His appointment marks another milestone in the expansion of our global distribution, and we look forward to much success as he and his team establish strategic partnerships across the region," says Chene.

Prior to joining Manulife Asset Management, Zanuso was with Sandell Asset Management as Head of Business Development, Europe, Middle East and Africa (EMEA). In his more than 17 years of sales and product development experience, he was involved in both traditional and alternative investments, including senior roles at FRM (Man Group), SEI Investments, and Scottish Widows Investment Partnership.

In another addition to the team, in July, James Wheeler will relocate from Manulife Asset Management's Hong Kong office to London. He will oversee business development in the Nordics and the Netherlands as head of sales and relationship management in those regions. He will report to Zanuso.

"The Nordic region and the Netherlands are large and strategically important markets for Manulife Asset Management's growth plans in Europe, and I am pleased that we will be able to benefit from James' extensive knowledge of these institutional investment markets," says Chene.

The appointments are the latest in a series of steps by Manulife Asset Management to expand its global distribution footprint. In November of last year, Robert Corbally was named to lead product in Europe and support its distribution initiative there, and in February, the firm appointed Diana Stockwell as Head of Latin American Sales and Relationship Management.
