Threadneedle Investments has appointed Chris Wagstaff as Head of Institutional Marketing.

Chris will be instrumental to Threadneedle’s effort to further cement its presence in the institutional market and enhance its DB and DC client propositions, through educational & thought leadership initiatives and the development of investment strategies for a post-annuities world. His appointment follows the recent addition of Craig Nowrie to Threadneedle’s Multi- Asset Allocation team, in an effort to expand the firm’s proposition in the multi-asset and solutions space.

Chris joins from Cass Business School Executive Education, where he was Client Director with responsibility for the development, design and delivery of bespoke pensions and investment programmes. Prior to this, he was Head of Investment Education at Aviva Investors.

Dominik Kremer, Head of Institutional Sales at Threadneedle Investments, said: “The fact that the institutional market is a key focus for Threadneedle is perhaps one of our best kept secrets. We are the fourth largest manager of UK retail assets, yet 67% of our global investments and mandates across equities, fixed income, multi-asset and real estate are managed for institutional clients.

Chris is the co-author of “The Trustee Guide to Investment”, published in 2011. He has an Economics degree from Cardiff University and is a graduate of the London Business School Investment Management Evening Programme. Chris holds several certificates and diplomas, including the Chartered Institute for Securities and Investment Diploma, the Chartered Insurance Institute Personal Finance Society Diploma, the UK SIP Investment Management Certificate and the Pensions Management Institute Award in Trusteeship.
