Imhof, who was previously at UBS Wealth Management, will oversee the global sales structure and the firm’s expanding product range as well as developing the skills of the sales teams. He will report into John Troiano, global head of distribution.

Schroders says the new role has been created to cater to clients’ increasingly complex needs.

Most recently Imhof was global head of portfolio specialists at UBS Wealth Management, where he managed the distribution of investment strategies globally.

Troiano says: “Our clients’ needs are changing significantly. The creation of this new role reflects our broadening product suite and the requirement for our sales people to possess specialist knowledge across all asset classes. Daniel brings with him a wealth of experience and we look forward to welcoming someone of his calibre to the company.”

Imhof adds: “Over the years I have worked closely with Schroders and witnessed first hand the quality of the people and investment capabilities across all asset classes. I am delighted to join this firm with its extensive geographic footprint and more than two centuries of heritage. I look forward to working with the sales and product teams to develop the global distribution business further.”
