Neuberger Berman has hired Jose Cosio from Alliance Bernstein to lead intermediary client coverage across EMEA and Latin America.
In his new role, he reports to Dik van Lomwel, who heads the EMEA and LatAM region. Cosio spent nine years in various senior business development roles at Alliance Bernstein.
His most recent role was as managing director of global intermediaries for the UK, MENA and southern Europe. He has also held roles at Wachovia Securities and Old Mutual Bermuda.
Van Lomwel commented: "We welcome Jose's experience and leadership as we continue to deepen the dialogue with our partners at global and regional financial institutions.
"Working closely with clients is at the heart of our business and has resulted in us opening 12 local offices across EMEA and LatAm over the last ten years."
He added the group's UCITS platform has grown to nearly 50 funds across traditional and alternative asset classes in the same time period, from fewer than ten funds, while total assets under management in the region have increased from $3bn to $44bn.
Cosio added: "Neuberger Berman is well known for its close long-term client partnerships through which it provides a wide variety of innovative investment solutions across liquid and illiquid markets. I look forward to joining the team and working with both new and existing clients."
