Chris Barrow

Assistant Vice President at Columbia Threadneedle Investments

About

Bio: Chris is currently an Assistant Vice President for Columbia Threadneedle Investments, a leading global asset manager in the City of London, working as their Client Onboarding Manager for Wholesale and Institutional business. He works closely with and oversees the activities of a Client Servicing team covering the UK, EMEA, LATAM and APAC regions. This focuses on the Distributor Agreements (contracts) implemented, maintained and amended for their client's and especially concentrates on any applicable Rebates & Retrocessions. He has worked for a number of Asset Managers, Custodians and Authorized Corporate Directors over the last 20 Years including Jupiter Unit Trust Managers, BNP Paribas, State Street Trust Bank and Aberdeen Asset Managers etc, covering Operations, Client Servicing and Relationship Management.

Recently he has joined the Diversity & Inclusion Group at CTI on the Pride & Allies Network and also supports the intersectional crossover for the BAME workstream. These networks are extremely important to Chris on a personal level and he is keen to champion, engage and support such initiatives to make visibility much easier for those currently impacted by any type of adversity in the workplace or those affected in the future. Whilst he recognizes there is a shift towards best practice' within the workplace, there is still a lot to overcome and ignorance, intolerance, bias and hatred still rear its ugly head. Hopefully together, we can reduce such inequality and promote a healthier, happier and more diverse environment for all to work in and flourish.
