Barings promotes Rod Aldridge to lead EMEA wholesale business

Baring Asset Management has appointed Rod Aldridge to the position of head of wholesale distribution, Europe, the Middle East and Africa.

Aldridge has 27 years’ industry experience and has worked with Barings since 2008, most recently holding the position of head of UK wholesale distribution.

In his new role he will remain based in London and will report to Angus Woolhouse, global head of distribution.

Aldridge joined Barings from Gartmore Investment Management where he was head of UK retail distribution. Prior to that he was involved in establishing the Cofunds investment platform in the UK.

Aldridge assumes the role from Oliver Morath who has resigned from Barings to pursue another opportunity in the industry.

Angus Woolhouse, global head of distribution at Barings, says: “The wholesale business in EMEA is a strategic priority for Barings and we continue to invest in the development and delivery of mutual funds sales across this important region.”

Barings manages assets of £27.1 billion (€38.2 billion) as at January 31, 2015.
