AMX hires former BlackRock managing director

Christopher HeadThe Asset Management Exchange (AMX) – which is backed by investment consultant Willis Towers Watson and claimed it could knock 40 basis points off global equity costs - has appointed former BlackRock managing director Christopher Head to the newly-created role of head of business development.

As part of the multi-asset institutional platform’s executive committee, Head’s responsibilities will include overseeing business development, marketing, and client servicing.

Head joins from US-based BlackRock where he was most recently head of UK local authorities. He worked at BlackRock for 13 years.

According to AMX’s global head Oliver Jaegemann, Head joins at a “critical time of growth” for the firm, which manages over $8 billion (€7 billion) of assets.

Launched in 2017, AMX acts as a low-cost hub for institutions and asset managers that manage their money.
