Who’s Moving Where In Wealth Management? – Janus Henderson, HBK

The latest moves and appointments in wealth management around the world.

Janus Henderson
London-based asset manager Janus Henderson has appointed Patrick Sanderson as head of UK client group. Based in London, he (pictured) will join the firm on 18 March and report to Ignacio De La Maza, head of EMEA and LatAm client group.

In this newly-created role, Sanderson will lead the firm’s intermediary and institutional distribution efforts in the UK, as well as UK consultant relations. Sanderson will also be responsible for the overall direction and strategy of the UK business, the firm said in a statement.

Sanderson, will join from Ninety One where he was head of business development, UK, responsible for sales and client management within the institutional and wholesale teams in addition to consultant relations for the firm’s UK business. Prior to that he led the UK and Ireland sales and relationship management teams at Royal Bank of Canada. Before that, he worked at JP Morgan, Citibank and Deutsche Bank. Prior to entering the world of financial services, Sanderson played professional rugby and captained the England team between 2001 and 2005.

“His deep understanding of the UK market, extensive experience of leading large distribution teams and proven track record of driving customer-focused initiatives have consistently helped clients to navigate the evolving asset management landscape. His background in professional rugby brings a fresh perspective and a core set of invaluable skills: teamwork, operating in high-performance environments and delivering under pressure,” De La Maza said.

Sanderson’s appointment follows several recent senior hires to Janus Henderson’s distribution teams. In November 2022, it hired Michael Schweitzer to head up the North America client group. In December 2023, Marwan AlSaleh was appointed as senior advisor for the firm’s business in the Middle East, and in January 2024, Christian Constandse was hired to lead sales in Mexico and strengthen the firm’s Latin America presence. Most recently, in February 2024, the firm appointed Adam Cassidy as retail sales director to bolster its Australian intermediary team.

HBK Investments Advisory
Geneva-based HBK Investments Advisory has appointed Sobhi Tabbara as a new partner, with immediate effect.

Tabbara will join the executive committee and the board of directors of HBK Investments Advisory subject to approval by the Swiss financial market regulator. This appointment reflects HBK's commitment to driving innovation and expanding its market presence, it said in a statement.

Tabbara’s career spans several decades in the banking and finance industry. In 1986, he started at the Republic National Bank of New York, where he “demonstrated unparalleled expertise” in managing a team of 120 people and expanding financial services across the Middle East and North Africa (MENA) region, the firm added. Tabbara's leadership roles have included leading strategic initiatives and managing a diverse team across global financial hubs. His multilingual fluency and extensive international experience put him in a strong position to lead HBK Investments Advisory's expansion efforts.

"His strategic foresight and deep market understanding are exactly what HBK Investments Advisory needs to navigate the future of wealth management,” Hani Kalouti, founder of HBK Investments Advisory, said.

HBK Investments Advisory is a Swiss-based wealth management firm, supervised by FINMA, which offers a comprehensive approach to financial planning and investment management.
