RBC Investor & Treasury Services (RBC I&TS) has hired Geert Pick in a new global product management role, with a focus on its transfer agency services.

Based in London, Pick joins as global head of product management, shareholders services, reporting to Paul Stillabower, global head of product management.

He will be responsible for setting the strategic direction of the custodian’s transfer agency product and aligning it with client demands.

Pick joins RBC from Genpact where he was responsible for digital transformation initiatives for strategic capital markets clients. Prior to that, Geert worked for Gartner, a technology research and advisory consulting firm, in its banking and investment services team.

“RBC I&TS is recognised as a leading provider of transfer agency services, with a comprehensive product offering across key markets,” Stillabower said. “Geert’s significant experience in business process re-design, innovation and digitisation will be key as we continue to deliver differentiated services to our clients.”

The Canadian-based custodian has made a number of key hires to its European team, including former JP Morgan’s former investment operations head, Aneet Shah, as head of global client experience.
