Mellon Global Investments has appointed William Battersby as Head of Consultant Relations. Battersby joined the company on 24 May 2004 and reports to Pauline Stuart, Head of Institutional Business for Europe, the Middle East and Asia (EMEA).
In this new role Battersby will be responsible for developing relationships between Mellon’s US asset management subsidiaries and investment consultants as well as the distribution of Mellon’s asset management products and services into UK and European markets.
Mark Scott joined Newton Investment Management last week as Head of Institutional Business. Scott, reporting directly to CEO Helena Morrissey, will be responsible for leading and developing Newton’s UK institutional sales, marketing and client servicing strategy. He will work closely with Battersby and Mellon Global Investments on Newton’s business development in Europe.
Battersby joins Mellon Global Investments from Julius Baer Investments where he was First Vice President and Director of Business Development for two years, responsible for cultivating relationships with leading investment consultants. Accountable for direct sales in the UK, Ireland and the Netherlands, Battersby also played a significant role in marketing a single strategy hedge fund and was a major contributor on several innovative institutional investment products.
Prior to joining Julius Baer Investments, Battersby was Director of Institutional Sales at Royal & Sun Alliance Investments (1997-2002), and was Business Manager at Quantitative Products from 1995-1997. Battersby is an archaeology graduate of the University of London.
“William’s extensive knowledge and experience of the consultant industry significantly strengthens our capability in this important area and aligns perfectly with our commitment to the institutional market and plans to grow Mellon’s institutional asset management business in the UK and Europe,” says Pauline Stuart, Head of Institutional Business for EMEA at Mellon Global Investments.
