Genworth Financial Wealth Management has hired the former executive director of global asset management at UBS to the post of strategic accounts director with a  focus on institutional clients.

David Pologe will focus on expanding relationships with independent broker dealers that already work with Genworth Financial Wealth Management, and will also expand to new firms, according to a company statement.

In addition to its more than 6,000 independent advisor clients, Genworth provides services and support —including asset allocation — to top national and regional broker dealers across the country.

Pologe, who has expertise in mutual funds, annuities, retirement plans and insurance, will report to Genworth Financial Wealth Management’s Vice President and National Sales Director Dan O’Toole.
