Heinen joins the Alternative Investment Strategy Group (AISG), a team that works closely with the client coverage and portfolio management teams to develop, position and promote BlackRock’s alternative investment solutions.
Based in London, Heinen reports to Rick Arney, BlackRock’s Head of Hedge Funds and Head of the Alternative Investment Strategy Group.
Most recently, Heinen managed Institutional Equity Derivatives and Fund-Linked Sales for Germany and Austria at the Royal Bank of Scotland. Previously he spent more than 10 years at Merrill Lynch and Nomura structuring and selling alternative products.
