HSBC has stepped up its alternatives marketing effort with the hire of Barclays Wealth’s Amy McNally.
McNally has been named global marketing manager at HSBC Alternative Investments. She will focus on marketing and distribution of hedge, private equity and real-estate funds in the U.K. and the broader Europe, Middle East and Africa market.
“HSBC has one of the most robust proprietary research capabilities, which is of paramount importance in order to offer the best risk-adjusted portfolios,” new boss Florence Picon said. “Amy’s role will be to assist the growth of this award winning business and ensure the best practice of service of products and customised solutions to our client base is delivered.”
At Barclays, McNally was an alternative investments product specialist. She previously worked for JPMorgan Treasury Services and ABN Amro.
“Amy’s appointment is very timely as there is strong demand for our capability, particularly in actively managed portfolios of hedge funds, real estate and private equity, which are currently well positioned to profit from the current market conditions and higher volatility,” Picon added.
