RBC Investor & Treasury Services (RBC I&TS) has hired Marian Azer as head of I&TS product management for Asia-Pacific and chief operating officer, global client coverage, for Australia.

Azer’s appointment follows that of the recent hiring of industry veteran David Brown from JP Morgan last month to lead client coverage across Australia.

She also joins the Canadian custodian from JP Morgan, previously as head of product, investor services for Australia and New Zealand.

Reporting to David Travers, head of I&TS Australia and Paul Stillabower, global head of product management, Azer will be responsible for design and execution of the custodian’s product strategy in the region, and governance for all client coverage activities in Australia.

“Marian joins us at an exciting time for our Australian business, where we have invested in new technology and people to enhance our business and position us for future growth in this strategically important market,” said Travers.
