Nuveen names Alexander Prout as Head of its International Advisory Services team
Nuveen appointed Alexander Prout as Head of its International Advisory Services team. In this role, Prout will build on Nuveen’s success in expanding its presence outside of the U.S. and attracting new clients. He reports to Margo Cook, President of Nuveen Advisory Services.
“We continue to grow our distribution capabilities in key regions outside of the U.S., including Europe, Asia Pacific, Canada and Latin America, to meet client demand for our expanding investment capabilities,” said Cook. “Alex will work closely with our diverse client base to deepen our existing relationships as well as build new relationships by delivering our insights and solutions to help investors meet their goals.”
Prout will lead a team of more than 30 global distribution professionals based in the United Kingdom, Australia, Hong Kong, Canada and the United States. Last year, Nuveen named Rune Sanbeck to lead the Europe, Middle East and Africa (EMEA) region, and in 2017, named Simon England-Brammer to oversee distribution in the Asia-Pacific region.
Prout most recently served as Head of Asia Pacific for Deutsche Asset Management (DWS) where he was responsible for the firm’s business platform in the region. Prior to DWS, he focused on global distribution efforts for Morgan Stanley, Invesco and Merrill Lynch. He joins the firm on February 12, 2019 and succeeds John Panagakis, who is leaving Nuveen to pursue other opportunities.
