PHILADELPHIA, PA, Monday, May 14, 2018 – FIS Group, a manager of U.S. and global developed, emerging and frontier markets equity portfolio strategies, is pleased to announce that Robert Morier has joined the firm as a senior vice president of sales and marketing. He will oversee FIS Group’s marketing and sales efforts, and will report directly to Tina Byles Williams, CEO and CIO of FIS Group.
“We are delighted to welcome Mr. Morier to the team,” says Ms. Byles Williams. “He brings over 18 years of experience in sales and marketing strategies for global and non-U.S. equity and debt investment products, which serves to enhance our continued commitment to meet and exceed our client’s performance objectives.”
Mr. Morier joins FIS Group from Global Evolution USA, where as managing director he directed the launch of its emerging and frontier sovereign debt strategies for North American institutions. He held previous directorships overseeing institutional investments at ClearBridge Investments, Indus Capital and Artio Global Investors.
