Eaton Vance Management (International) Limited (EVMI), a subsidiary of Eaton Vance Management (EVM), has announced the hire of Kiran Inamdar to the newly created role of Consultant Relations Director, UK & Ireland. Based in London, Ms. Inamdar reports to TJ Halbertsma, Managing Director, EVMI, and also works closely with Brad Thomas, Director of Global Consultant Relations, EVM, as well as the firm’s broader global consultant group in Boston.
Ms. Inamdar is charged with managing consultant relationships outside the US. She focuses on broadening Eaton Vance’s coverage of UK- and Ireland-based manager research and field consultants, in addition to focusing on their delegated services, to build awareness of the capabilities and rated-strategies of Eaton Vance and its affiliates with the local consultant community. Ms. Inamdar also manages relationships with consultants globally, including Continental Europe, Australia and Asia.
“We are delighted to have Kiran on our team to help generate awareness for our investment approach and strategies among the consultant community outside the US, an important area of focus for Eaton Vance,” according to Mr. Halbertsma. “She has extensive experience working with research and delegated consultants in the UK and Continental Europe, and has an in-depth understanding of equity and fixed-income strategies. This combination makes her well-suited to successfully lead our consultant coverage.”
This appointment further strengthens Eaton Vance’s commitment to developing a more significant presence in Europe. In early October, Eaton Vance announced that Mr. Thomas Body joined the company as Business Development Director for Germany and Austria.
Ms. Inamdar has more than 11 years of experience in business development at flagship financial firms. She joins Eaton Vance from American Century Investments, where she served as the EMEA Business Development Director for seven years. She covered UK investment consultants as well as institutional and intermediary prospects, and helped build awareness of the company’s offering to these audiences. Prior to this, Ms. Inamdar was affiliated with Morgan Stanley Investment Management, GAM and Reuters. She graduated from Manchester Metropolitan University with a BA in Marketing Management and holds a UKSIP Level 3 Certificate in Investment Management.
