Wells Fargo Asset Management (WFAM) has appointed Dan Morris as global head of portfolio solutions in its multi-asset solutions team.
Based in London, Morris will be responsible for designing solutions for retirement income strategies, wealth preservation, as well as downside risk protection.
He will report to the firm’s president and head of multi-asset solutions, Nicolaas Marais.
Morris most recently served as the head of US portfolio solutions at British fund manager Schroders. Prior to that, he headed the London Investment Strategy team at Towers Watson.
In addition, WFAM also appointed Martijn De Vree and Frank Cooke to its multi- asset solutions team. Most recently, De Vree was a senior solutions expert at Insight Investment, while Cooke was a senior investment consultant at Mercer in Hong Kong. The pair will operate out of London and report to Morris.
Earlier this year, the firm also appointed Jonathon Hobbs as head of US portfolio solutions for the multi-asset solutions team, based in San Francisco. Hobbs, who joins from BlackRock, will also report to Morris.
“The addition of Dan, Martijn, Frank, and Jonathon to our team is a significant step forward as we build out our innovative Multi-Asset Solutions team. These leaders bring a depth of experience to the platform that will play a crucial role in creating unlock moments for clients. We are building a team that strives to be a best-in-class problem-solving partner, dedicated to creating solutions that address the complex and changing needs of our clients,” Marais noted.
