Both will report to Josh Barton, Managing Director and Head Of Australia And New Zealand. 

Commenting on Negin’s appointment, Josh said, ‘Negin’s exceptional experience, and her passion for understanding and anticipating client needs, is well aligned with MFS’ client-centric approach and complements our dedicated and diverse team of relationship managers. We’re delighted to have her join us.

Commenting on her appointment, Negin said, ‘MFS is globally renowned for its deep and long-term relationships with investors. I’m excited to be part of a great team dedicated to supporting Australia’s world-leading institutional investment community.’
