Nicki Ashton back at Citi

  • By Zilla Efrat

Nicki Ashton has been appointed senior relationship manager at Citi Australia and will become part of its markets function to help meet increased client activity.

Ashton, who will focus on the superannuation sector, has a wealth of experience across banking and asset management, with more than 25 years of experience in financial services.

She is a Citi alumna, having worked previously in the bank’s equities and trading business before moving to asset management, where she has held several management positions, most recently with IFM Investors and Pendal Group.

Head of investor sales for Citi Australia and New Zealand, Mark Woodruff, says Ashton will be responsible for the growth of some of the company’s largest clients, particularly within the superannuation sector.

“The super sector has been a key area of focus across the markets platform and continues to provide increasing opportunities in both local and offshore markets as the funds internalise their investment function and seek to increase exposure to international markets.

“Ashton will work closely with product partners and the global relationship management team to ensure Citi remains a top tier global counterparty for this sector.”
