American investment management firm Legg Mason has named Alexander Barry as head of UK sales.

Based in London, Barry will spearhead the firm’s distribution of UK and Dublin-domiciled equity, fixed income and alternative investment funds to the wholesale and institutional market in the UK. He will manage a nine-member client facing professionals’ team in the new role.

He will take up the new responsibility in August 2017, and will report to the firm’s head of Europe and Americas distribution Justin Eede.

Barry most recently served at J.P. Morgan Asset Management, where he had tenure of around two decades in several sales roles. He previously also had a stint in the sales team at Fidelity International.

“Alex’s excellent reputation and extensive experience in growing and servicing key client relationships will be invaluable to Legg Mason as we look to expand the investment choices we deliver to our intermediary clients across the UK,” Eede stated.
