NEWARK, N.J., Sept. 15, 2020 – QMA, the quantitative equity and multi-asset specialist of PGIM, the $1.4 trillion global investment management business of Prudential Financial, Inc. (NYSE: PRU), has appointed a new head of U.S. Consultant Relations, as the company continues to focus on its global capabilities in client and business development.
Pamela Clancy joins QMA as managing director, head of U.S. Consultant Relations, overseeing a team of three, and based in Newark, New Jersey. She is responsible for coordinating all consultant activities and deepening relationships within the U.S. consultant community. Clancy reports to London-based John Gee-Grant, head of International Distribution and Global Consultant Relations.
“We are very pleased to welcome Pam and her wealth of consultant experience to QMA’s Global Distribution Team,” said Gee-Grant. “Her knowledge, passion and proven track record for cultivating relationships in the U.S. will immensely benefit our local and global efforts with investment consultants.”
Gee-Grant said Clancy’s hire is an important step in strengthening the firm’s growing presence across quantitative equity, multi-asset solutions and liquid alternative platforms, notably following PGIM’s acquisition of London-based Wadhwani Asset Management in January 2019. Clancy will play a critical role in continuing to ensure the firm’s U.S. clients and advisors have access to the full breadth of its global investment capabilities.
“Building comprehensive and complete solutions for our clients requires a strong distribution effort across all markets and Pam’s role is integral to our U.S. growth,” said QMA CEO Andrew Dyson. “Her strategic, seasoned leadership will bolster QMA’s abilities to coordinate with key stakeholders.”
Prior to joining QMA, Clancy served as a managing director, Consultant Relations for Man Investments. Previously, she was a senior vice president, Consultant Relations for Fidelity Institutional Asset Management and a consultant relations manager at Russell Investment Group.
