  • Three new hires announced as the team continues to expand

London, February 28 2019 – The Asset Management Exchange (‘AMX’), an institutional platform for investors and asset managers, has marked its second birthday with the announcement of three senior new hires.

Launched in February 2017, AMX was designed to fundamentally transform institutional investment for the benefit of the end saver by standardising, centralising and streamlining the process of investing by making implementation and monitoring more efficient. AMX has doubled its in-house team in the last year and, since launch, brought in nearly $7bn in AuM.

To coincide with the two-year anniversary and as part of the wider expansion plans, AMX has announced the appointment of Nick Horsfall as Managing Director in the Client Business Development team. In this role, Nick will be responsible for building client relationships with some of the largest and most advanced pension schemes in the UK.

Nick will also work closely with the AMX Advisory Board and use his technical knowledge and experience to bring Liability Driven Investing (LDI) strategies onto the platform. He joins from Willis Towers Watson’s Investments business, where he has over 30 years’ experience in the retirement and investment industries.

Additionally, Cassie Waller joins as Global Head of Intermediaries from Syntax Research, a Florida-based hedge fund. Prior to Syntax, she worked for State Street, covering UK asset owners and consultants.

Pippa Rudling also joins AMX as Consultant Relations Director from Aberdeen Standard Investments where she worked in consultant relations. In her new role, she will be covering UK consultants as well as identifying strategic intermediary partnerships across Europe.

Oliver Jaegemann, global head of AMX, said, “These new hires bring a raft of additional experience to AMX and will drive our expansion. As more investors and managers join the AMX platform, it’s vital that we have the relevant team in place to deliver the best results for investors, managers and ultimately the end saver.”
