Aegon Asset Management appoints Global Head of Consultant Relations & Global Financial Institutions
Aegon Asset Management has appointed Anne Coupe as its Global Head of Consultant Relations & Global Financial Institutions.
Coupe joins Aegon Asset Management in this newly created key role for the business, as it aims to broaden and deepen its established relationships with these important sectors of the institutional asset management industry.
Coupe has more than 20 years experience in investment consulting and consultant relations, most recently at BMO Global Asset Management where she was managing director, head of global consultant relations. She has also performed similar roles at UBS Asset Management and Deutsche Asset Management. Previously, she served as an investment consultant at both Mercer and Callan Associates.
Coupe’s appointment follows that of Russ Morrison, who joined the business last week as Global Chief Investment Officer for its €170 (US $188) billion* fixed income investment platform.
Coupe and Morrison join Aegon Asset Management as it begins the next step in its development into a truly global asset management business following its successful integration of its Asian, European and US divisions.
Managing a team of four, Coupe will be based in Chicago and report to Aegon Asset Management’s Global Head of Client Group Chris Thompson.
Thompson says: ‘Anne brings a strong and proven track record in managing consultant relations and will have a vital role to play developing and deepening our existing relationships with these important segments of the asset management industry.’
