Clarke joins from Blackrock, where she was global head of market intelligence. She has also held research and intelligence leadership roles at Merrill Lynch Investment Managers, Mercury Asset Management and Sanwa Bank.
The new hire is consistent with Broadridge’s plans to grow its competitive intelligence business, following the acquisition of the Thomson Reuters fiduciary services and competitive intelligence business last year.
It is also part of Broadridge’s strategy to develop analytics and market intelligence solutions for mutual fund manufacturers, exchange-traded fund (ETF) issuers and fund administrators.
Clarke will be based in London and will work with senior executives, service providers, and distribution teams to improve data-driven intelligence.
She will initially focus on expanding the content of the Broadridge global data analytics products, SalesWatch and FundFile, which track cross-border and domestic funds and ETFs around the world.
Dan Cwenar, president of the Broadridge data and analytics business, said: “Stephanie Clarke’s appointment is a critical element of our strategy to become the world leader in global competitive intelligence.”
He added: “Stephanie will work closely with the global asset management community to shape the future direction and development of our content business in new markets. We’re delighted she is joining our team.”
