Ninety One appoints new head of institutional from Goldman Sachs AM

The former managing director of client solutions and capital markets at Goldman Sachs Asset Management has been hired to help build out the firm’s US footprint.  

Investment manager Ninety One has appointed Gregg Abramson as its new head of institutional Northeast, based in New York. 

The new hire will be responsible for the firm’s engagements with institutional asset owners and consultants across the region, as well as sitting on the leadership team of the North America Client Group. 

Part of Ninety One’s ongoing growth plan to drive business across North America and expand its US footprint, Abramson will work with Jordan Miller, vice president institutional, Northeast, to drive new opportunities.  

He joins from Goldman Sachs Asset Management (GSAM), where he held the role of managing director, client solutions and capital markets, providing customised investment solutions to large US clients. He also previously held roles at Commonfund Asset Management and Lazard Asset Management.  

“Gregg joins us at an opportune time as our engagement with asset owners is translating into demand for a number of our capabilities, particularly, global and international equity and credit, emerging markets and, increasingly, sustainable investing,” said Philip Anker, Ninety One’s chief executive of the Americas. “After 10+ years of market tailwinds, investors face considerable challenges and Gregg is exceptionally well-suited to express Ninety One’s value proposition and differentiated investment expertise.”
