iShares strengthens investment strategy offering with new hire
iShares has appointed Ursula Marchioni to its EMEA investment strategy and insights team.
Marchioni has over ten years experience in ETFs, structured products and derivative markets.
She joins iShares from Credit Suisse, where she was most recently head of ETF sales strategy for its asset management division.
Prior to this, Marchioni worked in equity and fund-linked structured product sales for Société Générale with a focus on Italian financial institutions. She began her career with KPMG Advisory in Milan.
Marchioni joins iShares’ EMEA investment strategy and insights team as a director and will be based in its London office. The team is led by Stephen Cohen, head of investment strategies EMEA, and is responsible for providing clients with in-depth ETF market, portfolio and product analysis together with insights into global markets and implementation strategies.
Joe Linhares, head of iShares EMEA, says: “Ursula’s appointment is a demonstration of how we are enhancing our overall service to clients. At such a time of economic uncertainty, investors are questioning how they can put their money to work most effectively and looking for new insights to help them make informed investment decisions. Our clients benefit not only from our high quality fund range but from the expertise of our research and strategy professionals also.”
