UBS Global Asset Management expands US financial institutions group
UBS Global Asset Management has hired Kevin Granelli as a client advisor focusing on business development efforts in its US financial institutions group.
Based in New York, Granelli will focus on opportunities in the sub-advisory and financial intermediary markets, and will report to Bob McGowan, head of distribution for financial institutions and corporate clients for the Americas region.
"Kevin brings many years of experience in the sub-advisory and financial intermediary markets and has developed many close personal and professional relationships over the years," says McGowan. "We're excited to have him join our team as we continue to expand our relationships with our current clients and engage with new ones."
Prior to joining UBS, Granelli was a managing director at Guggenheim Investments, where he was responsible for developing and executing business strategy and planning across the sub-advisory, variable annuity and DC segments. Previously, he was a director at DWS Investments/Deutsche Asset Management, where he was responsible for new business development and client service. He has more than 22 years of investment experience.
"I am thrilled to be joining UBS, especially due to the variety of compelling investment strategies and solutions that I'll be able to offer new clients," says Granelli. "Plus, this is an exciting and dynamic time for the marketplace, so I believe there will be many opportunities in this part of the investment world."
In addition to hiring Granelli, the US financial institutions group has added two team members over the past year: Shawna Macnamara, national account manager; and Justine Richards, client service associate.
