Global investment firm T. Rowe Price has appointed Cassandra Crowe as head of consultants Australia and New Zealand to support the firm’s growth in the region, effective this week.

Based in Sydney, Crowe will work closely with the firm’s business development and investment teams to enhance engagement with consultants, researchers, platforms and advocacy groups that underpin the retail and institutional markets of Australia and New Zealand. She reports to London-based Nick Slater, head of EMEA and APAC consultant relations.

Murray Brewer, head of distribution Australia and New Zealand, said Crowe’s skills, experiences and perspectives are a wonderful addition to the existing team and that her appointment marks an exciting milestone for the local business.

Crowe joins from Allianz Retire+ Powered by PIMCO, where she was head of consultants and research. Prior, Crowe worked at NAB Asset Management as investment specialist and research manager, and at Dimensional Fund Advisors, where she was based in London for three years. In 2016, Crowe became a director and board member of the CFA Society Sydney.

The newly created specialist role is part of T. Rowe Price’s strategy to expand its investment capabilities and investment management services to meet new and changing needs of investors and retirees. The firm has successfully built out products and solutions spanning global equities, Australian equities, fixed income and multi-assets over the past decade, and will continue to introduce new products to the market.
