T. Rowe Price, the US$1.62 trillion global asset manager, has strengthened its commitment to the global financial intermediaries (GFI) space with the addition of experienced business development professional Cécile Mariani.
Based in London, Mariani assumes the newly created role of head of EMEA GFI, reporting to Flemming Madsen, T. Rowe Price’s global head of GFI.
Mariani is tasked with further strengthening T. Rowe Price’s relationships and accelerating the group’s engagements with major intermediaries across the EMEA region. She will work in close collaboration with T. Rowe Price’s broader team of EMEA relationship managers, as well as with GFI colleagues across the US and Asia Pacific.
Before joining T. Rowe Price, Mariani was head of global banks at M&G Investments, where she led the group’s GFI business development efforts. She spent 17 years in a number of distribution roles at M&G in London and Milan, after joining the company following six years at Société Générale.
Flemming Madsen, head of global financial institutions at T. Rowe Price comments: “The strengthening of our GFI team further demonstrates T. Rowe Price’s commitment towards this strategically important and complex client segment. Cécile brings a wealth of experience and a strong network, which we look forward to drawing on as we continue to develop our GFI business. Adding someone of Cécile calibre to our team underlines T. Rowe Price’s commitment to client service and the continued expansion of our footprint across the EMEA region.”
