Schroders has appointed Claire Walsh as Personal Finance Director, working across the entire Schroders Group, including communications, business development and public affairs.
Walsh (pictured), a Chartered Financial Adviser, will join later this month from Aspect8, a firm of Chartered Financial Planners based in Brighton. Aspect8 is part of Benchmark Capital, a business that Schroders has been investing in since October 2016. Claire will report to Beth Saint, Head of Communications.
James Cardew, Global Head of Marketing, Schroders, says: “Claire has impressive knowledge and experience of personal finance investing from individual pension plans through to ISAs. This deep understanding of both investments and of the fast moving marketplace means that she will be critical in helping our clients navigate the complex issues facing investors.”
Walsh says: “I have long been passionate and vocal about championing financial knowledge. In creating this role, Schroders is looking to add value to its clients and raise public awareness that will help to build confidence and trust in the investment profession and across financial services more broadly.”
“I am excited to be joining Schroders; it has a fantastic reputation, not just as one of the most respected asset managers in the City, but also for their strong culture of integrity and innovation.”
