Macquarie Investment Management (MIM), the investment management arm of Macquarie Group, has appointed Dominic Janssens as the firm’s new global chief operations officer, based at its global headquarters in Philadelphia.
In this role, Janssens’ responsibilities will include developing the strategy to optimise and scale MIM’s global platform in areas including investment operations, administration, controls, fund accounting, business management and financial and management analysis.
Janssens will join the organisation on 4 April and will report to Ben Bruck, the global head of Macquarie Investment Management and the chairman of Delaware Investments. While based in Philadelphia, he will oversee MIM’s operational groups in Sydney as well as those in Delaware Investments in Philadelphia.
“We’re thrilled to have someone with Dominic’s significant experience across a range of in-house, outsourced and acquired asset management operations join us,” says Bruck. “Dominic will be a key player as we seek to deliver a global client experience to all MIM clients, regardless of where they are located. To achieve this, we will look to apply the best practices from all of our regional groups toward one global asset management platform. I’m confident he will make an immediate impact across the firm.”
Janssens joins from T Rowe Price, where he has been the director of Global Investment and Institutional Client Services since 2008. Previously he worked at State Street Global Advisors, Deutsche Asset Management, Cargill Investor Services, and Deutsche Bank AG, among others.
