JPMorgan hires institutional head of Europe
09 June 2014
Newly-created leadership role continues expansion of the institutional business team
JPMorgan Asset Management has hired Christoph von Reiche as
head of Europe for its institutional business.
Von Reiche’s appointment is part of the
firm’s push to expand the European institutional
business team and highlights its aim to help solve investment
issues faced by European clients as the region’s
outlook continues to change.
"[Von Reiche] has extensive European experience of serving
institutional clients; that experience will help… as
clients increasingly look to more sophisticated investment
strategies and solutions," said Mike
O’Brien, global head of JPMorgan Asset
Management’s institutional business.
"Since 2008, institutional investors have been rethinking and
redesigning how they invest. Traditional investment models are
less appealing than they were prior to 2008 and it is no
surprise that we have seen significant growth in not only
alternatives but also, more broadly, the adoption of a
solutions-based approach to investing," said von
Von Reiche joins JPMorgan Asset Management from Goldman Sachs
Asset Management (GSAM) where he has spent much of his career.
Most recently he was head of GSAM’s institutional
business in Germany and Austria and has held a number of other
senior positions within the region prior to this.
O’Brien recently made a number of senior
appointments across JPMorgan’s European
institutional business, including James Peagam as European head
of insurance solutions, John Stainsby as head of UK
institutional business and Paul Sweeting as European head of
