SSGA hires head of SPDR ETFs

State Street Global Advisors has named the next head of SPDR ETFs in Australia.

Meaghan Victor brings more than 20 years of experience in the financial services industry, including senior leadership roles in asset management and Australian distribution.

She joins SSGA from BT Financial Group where she was national partnership manager. Previously she held roles in sales management, strategy and product development at KBC Asset Management and Fidelity International.

"Appointing Meaghan to lead our Australian ETF business advances our goals of having a strong global leadership team in place that is committed to serving our clients," SSGA global co-head of SPDR ETFs Rory Tobin said.

"The depth of experience Meaghan brings to this role will allow SSGA to build on the continued success of the SPDR ETF business in Australia and reinforces our commitment to providing investors with a comprehensive suite of investment solutions."

In her role at SSGA, Victor will be responsible for leading, managing and growing the SPDR ETF business, building new solutions across sales, marketing, capital markets, products and infrastructure.

SSGA head of Asia Pacific Lochiel Crafter said: "Our Australian SPDR ETF business is strengthened with Meaghan's appointment and allows us to further develop solutions for our clients."

Victor takes over from Shaun Parkin who moved into an institutional role with State Street Perth in April this year. Prior to that the position was held by Amanda Skelly who stepped into the newly created role between 2012 and 2016.

SSGA has 16 SPDR ETFs in Australia, including the SPDR S&P®/ASX 200 ETF.
