Prudential Investment Management appoints head of multi-asset class solutions group

Prudential Investment Management has named Michael Schlachter as head of its multi-asset class solutions group, a newly formed team that will address the most pressing portfolio-wide challenges faced by institutional investors.

The group will leverage the breadth of Prudential’s asset management capabilities across public and private fixed income, equities, real estate and alternatives to help investors solve issues around asset allocation, portfolio construction, dynamic de-risking and hedging.
 
The new group will serve institutional clients around the world.
 
Schlachter joins Prudential from Wilshire Associates, where he most recently was a managing director and lead consultant to multinational corporations, state governments and federal agencies, with an emphasis on asset allocation, risk and liability management, and portfolio structuring.
 
“Our clients increasingly ask for our expertise to develop strategies across their portfolios that will enable them to achieve long-term objectives and absolute risk-adjusted performance. Prudential’s unique combination of experience in liability and asset management makes us well-suited to meet those needs,” says David Hunt, CEO of Prudential Investment Management. “Michael’s deep industry experience and understanding of our clients is invaluable as he leads the effort to create holistic investment solutions in collaboration with each of our asset management businesses.”
 
Schlachter says: “As institutional investors look to consolidate their relationships, they need strategic partnerships with firms who share their global perspective and offer more than just single asset class investment management. I’m delighted to join Prudential and support its solutions-oriented approach.”
