Capital Group has appointed Katharine Dryer as equity lead for the Europe and Asia client group.
Dryer will focus on expanding the firm’s equity distribution strategy and product development roadmap to better serve institutional and intermediary clients across Europe and Asia, according to a statement from Capital Group.
Based in London, she will report to Alexandra Haggard, head of asset class services for the Europe and Asia client group.
The announcement follows on the heels of Scott Steele’s appointment as fixed income lead for the Europe and Asia client group.
Dryer was most recently deputy CIO at Jupiter Asset Management, where she held a number of key roles during a near decade tenure there. Prior to that, she worked at BlackRock, Morgan Stanley Investment Management and Deutsche Asset Management.
“We are delighted to welcome Katharine to Capital Group. Working alongside the team, she will play a crucial role in building out and executing our equity commercialisation strategy across Europe and Asia,” said Andy Budden, investment director.
“With her deep distribution and investment expertise, she will be pivotal in helping our clients build more resilient and diversified portfolios as we continuously expand our active equity strategies across Europe and Asia.”
“As one of the leading global investment managers, Capital Group is renowned for its deep research capabilities and track record of results. I look forward to working alongside the team as we singularly focus on bringing our clients the best global investment opportunities through long-term active management,” said Dryer.
