Based in Sydney, Azer will report jointly to David Travers, head of I&TS Australia, and Paul Stillabower, global head of product management.
Azer will be responsible for the design and execution of the RBC I&TS product management in APAC, and governance for all client coverage activities in Australia.
Prior to RBC I&TS, Azer was head of product and investor services at JPMorgan Chase, and before this she held senior roles at Mercer and BNP Paribas. She has more than 20 years’ experience in financial services.
Travers said: “Marian Azer joins us at an exciting time for our Australian business, where we have invested in new technology and people to enhance our business and position us for future growth in this strategically important market.”
Paul Stillabower commented: “Globally, we are focused on being a specialist provider, delivering market-leading products and technology that evolve with our clients’ needs. With Marian Azer’s background and strong expertise, we are well placed to bolster our product offering in Australia and Asia.”
This is the latest new hire to the Sydney office, following the appointment of David Brown, who was named managing director and head of global client coverage for Australia at RBC I&TS in November. Brown joined from J.P. Morgan.
