Putnam Investments names head of institutional business in Nordics and Benelux Regions

RELATED TOPICS​

Putnam Investments has appointed Oliver Grimson as Director of Investment Management for the Nordics and Benelux regions, responsible for leading the firm’s work with the institutional marketplace in the area.

Grimson is based in London and reports directly to Daniel Melley who oversees the firm’s broader efforts to serve institutional clients in Europe, the Middle East and Africa (EMEA) for Putnam.
 
“In our continuing work to provide leading investment strategies to institutional clients across Europe, we are pleased to bring onboard a talented professional such as Oliver to drive the firm’s efforts in two very important regions,” says Melley. “Oliver’s in-depth knowledge and experience working in continental Northern Europe will even further enhance Putnam’s approach to building successful relationships in the marketplace based on close alignment with clients’ investment objectives.”
 
Grimson joins an EMEA team led by Melley, who joined Putnam in 2016 as part of the firm’s growing European presence. Melley reports directly to Jeffrey L Gould, Head of Putnam Global Institutional Management.
 
Melley indicated that another noteworthy new hire by Putnam was the appointment of Katherine Collins as Head of Sustainable Investing earlier this year. Collins is spearheading the firm’s incorporation of advanced ESG thinking across investment platforms and will be exploring the development of new strategies for the marketplace.
