Pewaukee, Wis.-based investment management firm Capital Innovations is expanding its real assets team with the hiring of William O’Connor.

O’Connor joined the firm in May from BMO Global Asset Management USA (formerly M&I Investment Management) where he’d been a portfolio manager responsible for both the actively managed Large-Cap Growth Equity and Large-Cap Core Equity separate account investment strategies. O’Connor began his investment career with M&I Investment Management Corp. in 1979 and served as an equity research analyst and portfolio manager for Large-Cap Growth and Large-Cap Core strategies. 

In his new role at CI, O’Connor will focus on the firm’s global research department processes, organization and staff management. His responsibilities will include equity valuation, industry sector and stock research, strategy, development, portfolio optimization, attribution analysis and the oversight of ongoing investment research.

"Our firm has long been active in real assets investing and is committed to providing outstanding value to our clients by focusing on some of the most promising investment opportunities in the global economy," said Michael D. Underhill, Capital Innovations’ CEO and CIO, in a statement. "The recruitment of exceptional talent will further enhance an already deep and successful team, reinforcing Capital Innovations' continued commitment to this important segment of the global markets."

Capital Innovations is a boutique institutional real assets investment manager, serving clients throughout North America, Europe and Asia.
