is about to have a new boss on the other side of the Atlantic amid a board shakeup.

Chief Executive Officer, North America/Co-Head of fixed income
a host of top-level changes, most notably that on April 4 Michael Dobson
will step down as CEO as all of Schroders. Peter Harrison
, head of investment at Schroders and long-time rumored heir-apparent, will step into Dobson's shoes, while Dobson will succeed the retiring Andrew Beeson
as non-executive chairman at Schroders.
Patrick Jenkins, Madison Marriage, and Chris Newlands of the Financial Times broke the news
yesterday that, per unnamed sources, Schroders would today be revealing the promotion of Dobson to CEO.
Meanwhile, two other Schroders board members are leaving, too: Massimo Tosato
, executive vice chairman and global head of distribution, who will retire from the board and the company at the end of 2016; and Ashley Almanza
, CEO of G4S and chairman of Schroders' board's audit and risk committee, who not seek relection and will leave the board at its April 28 meeting.
New York-based Dasher
serves as CEO of the London-based multinational's arm in North America and as co-head of fixed income. As of September 30, 2015, Schroders had $446.5 billion in worldwide AUM and 37 offices in 27 different countries.
The original FT
article offers more insight into both Dobson and Harrison and features quotes from several unnamed Schroders shareholders commenting on the shift. And the paper covered
the official news today, too.
