There has been a senior hire in the US at the asset management arm of the renowned Rothschild Group.

Rothschild Asset Management, the US asset management business of the Rothschild Group, has appointed Jennifer Kulp as managing director and head of North America retail distribution, effective from 1 September, 2015.

In this newly-created position, Kulp will lead the firm's retail distribution strategy and partner with distribution channels to ensure financial advisors are achieving their investment goals.

Kulp spent over 20 years at the independent investment management firm Brinker Capital, where she was most recently a managing director in the firm's wealth advisory sales group.

Last month, Rothschild Asset Management named Joseph Gill as a managing director within the firm's institutional sales team. In March 2015, it appointed Michael Woods as chief executive, and in April 2015 appointed Shakil Riaz as global chief investment officer and head of US alternative portfolio management.

The firm currently has $6 billion in assets under management in the US and more than $60 billion globally. It serves corporations, endowments, foundations and high net worth individuals.
