T Rowe Price Names New Asia Pacific Chief Operating Officer

The new chief operating officer will relocate to Australia from the firm’s London office.

T Rowe Price, a global asset manager, has just announced that financial services and operations veteran Tim Chamberlain (pictured) will be appointed Asia-Pacific (APAC) regional chief operating officer (COO), starting in May. 

Chamberlain currently serves as general manager for T Rowe Price’s chief data office, a position that he has held since joining the firm in April 2023, the firm said in a statement. He has also served as interim chief of staff and general manager for the COO Group. In his new role, Chamberlain will provide oversight and management of the firm’s APAC offices and their operations to support business growth in the region.  

In addition, Chamberlain will be supporting the management of the APAC business and functioning as a key advisor and business partner to regional leaders and other senior executives.  

“He will be focused on building local teams that will help us drive operational excellence in a complex data environment, while keeping the region connected in our global operating model,” Kimberly Johnson, chief operating officer at T Rowe Price, said.

Elsie Chan, head of APAC distribution at T Rowe Price, welcomed Chamberlain, saying that his appointment reflected the firm’s efforts to drive local empowerment and decision-making, and strong functional support in the region.  

Prior to joining T Rowe Price, Chamberlain spent more than 16 years with S&P Global Ratings based in London, Singapore, and Melbourne, serving in a variety of regional and global leadership roles across data, technology and operations, including the position of Asia-Pacific COO for S&P Global Ratings in Singapore. After his career at S&P, he established his own consultancy business specialising in operational and digital transformation, the firm added.

Founded in 1937, with $1.54 trillion in assets under management, T Rowe Price helps individuals and institutions achieve their long-term investment goals.
