Janus Henderson has appointed Greg Clarke as director of institutional solutions, responsible for being the link between the Australian institutional business, marketing and investment divisions.
In the newly-created role, he would be based in the Sydney office, reporting to Matt Gaden, head of Australia.
Clarke had over 25 years’ experience in asset management, insurance and superannuation having previously worked for TAL, Suncorp, QBE Insurance, Pengana, QIC, and AMP Capital.
In his most recent role with TAL as consultant – asset specialist, investments, retirement and new propositions, he played a key role in the transition of the newly-acquired Suncorp life insurance business into the TAL business.
Gaden said Clarke’s extensive investment and research experience would complement the firm’s ability to provide clients with insights that were focused on capitalising the opportunities and solving the challenges they face.
“As our institutional audience evolves to become ever more sophisticated, and the complexity of some of our strategies increases, it is critical that Janus Henderson creates better and more client-centric messaging which accurately represents the capabilities of the firm and ensures that clients feel that they have been listened to and understood,” Gaden said.
