PGIM Investments hires head of UK wholesale

RELATED TOPICS​

PGIM Investments has appointed Robert Hall as head of UK wholesale, effective immediately.

Based in PGIM’s London office, Hall reports to Kimberly LaPointe, head of PGIM Investments International. As head of UK wholesale, Hall is tasked with reinforcing and building PGIM Investments’ relationships in the key UK intermediary/wholesale channel – which spans private banks, family offices, fund of funds, wealth managers and other intermediaries. Hall will also partner with recently appointed head of GFI strategy, Guillaume Lendormy, to grow relationships with global banks in London.  

The UK is a core market for PGIM Investments, with the group continually investing in operating infrastructure and product development. In 2020, PGIM Investments joined the Investment Association, further enhancing visibility of its suite of specialist UCITS strategies – from its PGIM Fixed Income, Jennison Associates, PGIM Real Estate and PGIM Quantitative Solutions (formerly QMA) affiliates – within the UK wholesale market. 

PGIM Investments’ UCITS platform has grown from USD5 billion of assets under management at the start of 2020, to USD9.6 billion as of August 2021.  

LaPointe says: “Growing our European platform with the strategic hiring of talent remains a key priority for our business. We are extremely pleased with the development of our UK business in recent years, in what remains a highly competitive marketplace. UK intermediaries are increasingly recognising PGIM as a home of skilled active management, and we are witnessing accelerating demand for our range of specialist fixed income, equity, and real estate offerings. Attracting a skilled and experienced client relationship specialist such as Robert further highlights our drive to continue to grow our reach in this priority area.” 

Hall joins PGIM Investments after more than a decade at Natixis Investment Managers, most recently as director, UK wholesale leading on London and South African wholesale markets. 

Hall adds: “I am thrilled to be joining PGIM Investments at such an exciting time for the business. The UK wholesale market truly understands the power of active management, which, over the past 18 months has again added considerable value. In this role, I am fortunate to have access to numerous compelling active propositions – including the PGIM Jennison Global Equity Opportunities and PGIM Jennison Emerging Markets Equity funds, which are proven leaders in identifying disruptive growth companies at the forefront of the new world economy.”
