Nieuwe baan man (13) on the move

Fekko Ebbens has been appointed Head of Institutional Business for EMEA at Neuberger Berman. He will continue in his current role as Head of Institutional Coverage in Benelux but will additionally work closely with client coverage teams to execute Neuberger Berman’s institutional strategy and activities across the region.

His appointment reflects Neuberger Berman’s investment in the institutional business, aligning with Jose Cosio’s leadership of the firm’s intermediary business across EMEA. While the leadership and contributions of Neuberger Berman’s country and regional heads remain vital, this channel-focused approach aims to boost client experience and execution for both institutional and intermediary clients.

Ebbens, who joined Neuberger Berman in May last year to lead the institutional business in Benelux, brings extensive experience to his expanded role. Prior to joining Neuberger Berman, he held several leadership and business development positions at UBS Asset Management – including head of EMEA institutional and global head of institutional client coverage. In these roles, he collaborated with pension funds, insurance companies, sovereign wealth funds, and central banks globally, managing a diverse business across asset classes and regions.

Matt Malloy, head of the Global Institutional Client Group and head of EMEA at Neuberger Berman, says: 'Neuberger Berman’s institutional client franchise, with its expansive scope and scale, necessitates strong leadership. In addition to our public and private markets funds, client mandates are becoming increasingly bespoke and multifaceted, ranging from sophisticated multi-asset and liability-aware solutions, to client partnerships in private markets. Fekko’s expertise and leadership will be instrumental in navigating these complexities and delivering tailored solutions to our institutional clients in an efficient manner.'
