Barings Names New Head Of Marketing, Communications

Baring Asset Management, the London-headquartered investment house which is part of MassMutual Financial Group, has appointed Claire Fraser as head of marketing and communications, with effect from 1 August.

Fraser has been at Barings since October 2010, having joined as head of EMEA marketing before being promoted to the global role of head of distribution marketing. Before that, she was associate director, channel marketing at Insight Investment, having previously held senior marketing roles at Charles Stanley & Co and HSBC Asset Management. 

Based in London and reporting to David Brennan, chairman and chief executive of Barings, in her new role, Fraser will be responsible for marketing Barings’ range of pooled and segregated products across all channels globally as well as having oversight of the media relations and corporate communications functions.

In other recent hires at the firm, last month Baring Asset Management added Staffan Lindfeldt and Isabelle Alexander to its global emerging market equities team, based in its London office.
