Global asset management firm T. Rowe Price has announced the appointment of Jacquie Arnott to lead its Wholesale and Family Office Distribution for Australia and New Zealand, effective February 22. The appointment underscores T. Rowe Price’s long-term focus on providing its diversified client base with an expanding range of investment strategies.

In her new role, Arnott is responsible for leading the firm’s continued growth in the wholesale and family office distribution channels, including the private banks. She continues to report to Jonathon Ross, Head of Intermediary Australia and New Zealand and remains based in Sydney.

Our key focus is to ensure wholesale and family office clients have access to T. Rowe Price’s global investment expertise across our equity, fixed income and multi-asset capabilities that align with their long-term objectives.”

He added, “Jacquie has demonstrated strong experience in the wholesale and family office distribution channel and is an ideal candidate to lead this important growth area for the firm. Her extensive knowledge and experience in this important client segment make her an ideal candidate to deepen our existing relationships and drive new partnerships.”
