Invesco appoints Rod Ringrow with sovereign client focus

Rod_RingrowInvesco has appointed Rod Ringrow, formerly at State Street, in a move designed to increase Invesco’s client list of sovereign wealth funds and similar investors.

Ringrow, who joined State Street in 1998 as head of Middle East business, becomes head of official institutions at Invesco.

He replaces Tim Jackson, but with an enhanced remit encompassing – additionally – Invesco’s sovereign proposition across Europe, Middle East and Africa (Emea), and Latin America.

Ringrow reports to head of Middle East and Africa distribution, Zainab Kufaishi, and will focus on regional central banks and official institutions globally.

Kufaishi said official institutions were an important client group for Invesco and said the firm was “looking forward to continuing to deepen our commitment to sovereign investors through our established and specialist thought-leadership and knowledge transfer programmes”.

At State Street, Ringrow was most recently responsible for sovereign sales and strategic client coverage in Emea.

Previous jobs included working at Standard Chartered Bank in the UK and India.
