AMG Taps BlackRock Exec. To Lead Global Distribution Unit

Jun 22 2011 | 9:26am ET

Affiliated Managers Group has appointed Andrew Dyson to the newly-created position of executive vice president and head of global distribution. Dyson will be based in London, reporting to Nathaniel Dalton, AMG’s president and chief operating officer.

Dyson joins AMG from BlackRock, where he most recently served as head of the global institutional client business. In prior roles at BlackRock and Merrill Lynch Investment Managers, Dyson held senior distribution positions, including head of the international institutional business.

Sean Healey, chairman and chief executive officer of AMG, said: “Our strategy, which combines affiliate-driven efforts with the platform of a global franchise, is generating strong client cash flows, and, given Andrew’s proven track record of leadership in global distribution, we are confident he will play an invaluable role in accelerating the growth and scale of our distribution worldwide.”

AMG’s affiliates are boutique investment firms that specialize in a broad array of investment products, particularly in global and emerging markets equity and alternative strategies.

“AMG is widely recognized as the leading global multi-boutique model, with unparalleled investment management talent and a broad array of outstanding alpha-generating products across its affiliate group,” said Dyson. “As clients increasingly prefer to seek return-oriented strategies from specialist boutiques whose interests are aligned with theirs, AMG is well positioned for continued strong growth both through its existing operations around the world and through new markets.”

AMG’s affiliates boast aggregate assets under management of approximately $340 billion in more than 350 investment products across a broad range of investment styles.
