Seix Investment Advisors hires Head of Western Institutional Sales

RELATED TOPICS​

Seix Investment Advisors, a subsidiary of RidgeWorth Investments, has hired John Haugh, CFA, as Managing Director, Institutional Sales.

In this capacity, Haugh will lead Seix's direct institutional sales and marketing efforts in the newly created Western region. Working in concert with Seix's existing institutional sales and client service team, Haugh will be responsible for generating new business for the entirety of Seix's investment management platform via direct calling on large public and corporate defined benefit plans.

"This position, and the hiring of John, will help RidgeWorth Investments continue to evolve and expand," says Ashi S Parikh, RidgeWorth Chief Executive Officer and Chief Investment Officer. "With almost 20 years of institutional sales and pension advisory experience, including successful sales coverage of the Western region at former employers, John's background makes him ideally suited to succeed in this important endeavour."

Haugh joins Seix from New York-based Capstone Investment Advisors, where he served as Director of Marketing and US Product Development for the alternative asset management firm. In that capacity, he was primarily responsible for business development endeavours and was successful in growing the firm's institutional presence.  Previously, he held senior institutional sales and pension advisory/consultant roles at Deutsche Securities, Bank of America Merrill Lynch, and JP Morgan.  John started his career as an actuary, a role that provided a robust technical grounding in fixed income, which continues to serve him well.

"Our ongoing strategic planning has identified the Western region as one of particular interest/appeal for Seix, for reasons including the fact that many "mega" plans are located there. These larger plans have been highlighted by marketplace observers for their expected increased future allocations to certain fixed income strategies that we offer the institutional marketplace," says Patrick Mc Nelis, Managing Director and Head of Global Distribution & Client Service. "John's arrival signals our intent to increase our market share in this important channel, which we have not explicitly targeted for sales coverage in recent years."
