Nikko Asset Management has tapped Alex Shaw to head Europe, Middle East and Africa sales and marketing.
Shaw has spent 20 years in the long-only and alternative investment industries, most recently at Cambridge Strategy. Prior to that he was managing director EMEA at Arden Asset Management and before that held senior positions at firms such as GAM and Mercury Asset Management.
In his new role, Shaw will be responsible for marketing to institutional and distribution platforms across the EMEA region where Nikko AM is expanding to capitalize on growing investor interest in Japan and Asia.
“Alex’s knowledge of the region, his extensive investment industry relationships and network, and the experience he has gained across various investment sectors and strategies, makes him the perfect fit for this new role,” said Hideo Abe, executive vice chairman of Nikko AM, in a statement. “It also is a clear demonstration of Nikko AM’s ambition to grow its presence in the region.”
Shaw is based in Nikko AM’s European headquarters in London.
