BNY Mellon names Cynthia Steer head of manager research & investment solutions for investment management


BNY Mellon Investment Management has named Cynthia Steer as Head of Manager Research & Investment Solutions. Reporting to Curtis Arledge, chief executive officer of BNY Mellon Investment Management, and Mitchell Harris, president, she succeeds Phil Maisano, who retired earlier this year.

Steer joins BNY Mellon from Russell Investments, where she was managing director for investment strategy and consulting. She was responsible for working with clients on investment policy decisions, development of liquidity strategies, and asset allocation, including to emerging and frontier markets.  Before joining Russell, she was chief research strategist at Rogerscasey and oversaw global investment management and capital markets research, emerging and frontier markets research, and fixed income research. Her experience also includes managing the assets of a broad spectrum of major public and corporate pension plans, including those of several Fortune 500 companies, investments for high-net-worth individuals and families, and public and private endowment funds.

In her new role, Steer will have responsibility for performance oversight, due diligence and analysis of investment performance across BNY Mellon Investment Management. She will also be the senior investment advisor to the executive management of BNY Mellon Investment Management.  Steer will focus on measuring and analysing the firm’s investment strategies and on its overall solutions effort.  In addition, she will provide ongoing thought leadership on global investment strategy.

"Cynthia’s skills as a consultant, investor and manager will be critical as we strive to deliver the optimal investment solutions for our clients around the world," says Arledge. "BNY Mellon has always aimed to deliver the best possible investment performance, and Cynthia’s focus on measuring and analysing this performance, and her demonstrated track record in strategic leadership, will help us further refine the way we manage assets."
