Nikko AM appoints Alex Shaw as head of EMEA sales and marketing
Alex Shaw has been named head of Europe, Middle East and Africa (EMEA) sales and marketing at Nikko Asset Management.
The creation of this new role is in line with Nikko AM’s ambition to expand its presence across the EMEA region, and is intended to capitalise on the growing interest toward investment opportunities in Japan and Asia.
Shaw is responsible for marketing to institutional and distribution platforms across the EMEA region.
In a career spanning over 20 years across the long-only and alternative investment industries, Shaw was most recently at Cambridge Strategy and previously was managing director EMEA at Arden Asset Management. Prior to that, he held senior positions at firms such as GAM and Mercury Asset Management.
“This is a significant appointment for Nikko AM and represents a clear and timely opportunity to take advantage of the growing investor appetite for Japan and Asia,” says Hideo Abe, executive vice chairman of Nikko AM. “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. 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.
