RBC Wealth Management hires Blazhko and Gorshkova to drive business development in Eastern Europe
RBC Wealth Management has appointed Tanya Blazhko and Nathalie Gorshkova as directors on its London-based Eastern Europe desk.
They will report to Philip Harris, head of UK Private Clients.
As relationship managers, Blazhko and Gorshkova are mandated to expand RBC Wealth Management’s reach into the Eastern European markets, including the Commonwealth of Independent States region.
Blazhko joins from Bank of America Merrill Lynch where she was vice president of structured products and derivatives on the Emerging Markets/CIS desk included marketing structured tailored solutions for her clients across asset classes, and managing senior client relationships.
Gorshkova was most recently senior relationship manager at BNP Paribas Wealth Management, charged with developing tailored solutions for high and ultra high net worth clients in the CIS region.
“We established the Eastern Europe desk almost a year ago in order to channel our expertise and suite of solutions for high net worth individuals in those markets. The background and skill set that Tanya and Nathalie bring are strongly aligned with our ambitions in this region, and their appointments are proof of a commitment to deepening our coverage of both developed and emerging markets,” said Mike Moodie, head of RBC Wealth Management-UK.
