William Blair, a global investment banking and asset management firm, has appointed Stephanie Braming (pictured), CFA as global head of the William Blair Investment Management (WBIM) business. Braming will join the firm’s executive committee and will be based in Chicago.

As global head of Investment Management, Braming, who was most recently a portfolio manager for the William Blair International Small Cap Growth and William Blair International Growth strategies, where she had responsibility for nearly USD20 billion of client assets, will be responsible for the strategic direction of the business.
 
“Stephanie brings deep knowledge and strong understanding of our business as well as a real commitment and passion for our clients. She has been a member of Investment Management’s extended leadership team, and is well suited to manage our nearly USD74 billion asset management franchise. We are very excited to have her in this role to drive our strategy for the future,” says John Ettelson, President and CEO of William Blair.
 
“My focus is on results driven strategies in order to generate strong client outcomes,” says Stephanie Braming. “We take our role as stewards of client capital seriously, and I look forward to building upon William Blair’s investment-centric culture of collaboration, innovation, and growth.”
 
Braming joined William Blair in 2004 as an International and Global equity product specialist, and has been instrumental in portfolio construction, portfolio design and has had a leadership role in the enhancement of the firm’s systematic research tools. She has also led the design and launch of several strategies including those focused on China A-Share and Japan. Prior to joining the firm, she was a principal at Mercer Investment Consulting, and before that, at the Federal Reserve Bank of Chicago. Braming is a member of the CFA Institute and the CFA Society of Chicago, where she served on the Society’s board of directors.
