Daniel Melley has joined Putnam Investments in a newly created senior position responsible for the firm's efforts serving institutional clients and investors in Europe, the Middle East and Africa (EMEA).
Based in London, Melley (pictured) will report directly to Jeffrey L Gould, head of Putnam Global Institutional Management.
"In the coming years, we expect to see an ongoing evolution of the institutional marketplace within Europe, the Middle East and Africa, presenting its own unique set of opportunities," says Gould. "As the region continues to seek an array of innovative strategies, leading investment thought leadership and an unyielding commitment to service, Putnam, under Dan's leadership, is well-positioned to be a partner of choice – providing tailored, long-term solutions."
Melley will be responsible for overseeing institutional sales and consultant relations for Putnam in the EMEA region.
Melley joins Putnam from London-based Winton Capital, a USD30 billion hedge fund, where he had served as global head of consultant relations since 2015. Prior to that he spent 17 years at Mercer, where he worked in both the New York and London offices, holding a series of leadership positions. Melley began his career at Bessemer Trust in New York in 1996.
