As well as heading up the UK and Ireland business, where she is responsible for business strategy in the region, she will also become global head of ETF, indexing and smart beta strategic accounts coordination.

Following Fagan’s exit, Joe Parkin has taken on a broader role at Blackrock and is now head of iShares UK sales.
