J O Hambro Capital Management (JOHCM) has appointed Nick Good as CEO of its US business to be based in the firm's Boston office.
Before being appointed as CEO of JOHCM in the US, Good was executive vice president, chief growth and strategy officer at State Street Corporation, also based in Boston. He was in this role responsible for setting overall business strategy and leading corporate development.
Previously, he was co-head of State Street Global Advisors's (SSGA) Global ETF business, with primary responsibility for North America and Latin America. According to JOHCM, the Global ETF business grew assets under management by 50% during his tenure between the end of the 2015 and 2017 financial years. Prior to joining State Street, he worked at BlackRock (initially Barclays Global Investors), including five years as head of its iShares ETF business in Asia-Pacific, which enjoyed rapid growth under his leadership.
Emilio Gonzalez, Group CEO of Pendal Group, JOHCM's parent company, said: "Nick's leadership and achievements with global asset managers made him the prime candidate to lead our US business. He has built and grown successful businesses, has deep knowledge of the market and a track record of delivering results."
JOHCM manages approximately US$15bn on behalf of US institutional and wholesale clients as at 30 of June 2019. It has investment offices in Boston and New York, home to its US Small Mid Cap Equity team and Multi-Asset and International Small Cap teams, respectively, and has US-based institutional and mutual funds sales teams.
Good's hire follows the recent appointment of Alexandra Altinger as CEO for the UK, Europe & Asia, which includes the company's London and Singapore operations.
