Voya Investment Management has appointed Michael De Feo as head of retirement and investment only.
De Feo reports to Jake Tuzza, head of intermediary distribution for Voya Investment Management.
"Mike will oversee, and be responsible for, all aspects of our partnership with Voya's retirement business, third-party defined contribution investment only (DCIO) efforts, sub-advisory, and working with our institutional team to help grow our DCIO business," says Tuzza. "Under Mike's guidance, we will strengthen our focus on retirement, centralise our efforts in support of defined contribution and, together with our affiliates, accelerate our desire to be recognised as the retirement asset manager of choice."
Prior to joining Voya IM, De Feo was managing director, DCIO, strategic alliances and sub-advised at Nuveen Investments. In this role, he was responsible for managing marketing, sales and key account functions as Nuveen's DCIO business head.
"Mike has a long track record of success in the defined contribution investment arena—building strong relationships with key record-keepers and broker-dealers, and using value-add programmes to help grow sales and assets under management," says Tuzza.
