Victor Samoilovich and Daniel Glickman were named managing directors and portfolio managers at New York Life Investment Management, confirmed Allison Nussen, spokeswoman. They will manage institutional quantitative small-cap and midcap value equity strategies, as well as the firm's Mainstay Small-Cap Opportunity and Mid-Cap Opportunity mutual funds. They replace portfolio managers Kathy O'Connor and Jeff Sanders, who joined Morgan Stanley Investment Management last month. Messrs. Samoilovich and Glickman were both portfolio managers with TIAA-CREF, where they managed small-cap equity strategies. These strategies will now be managed solely by Michael Shing, managing director and head of the U.S. quantitative equity group, who worked on the small-cap team with Messrs. Samoilovich and Glickman, said TIAA-CREF spokesman Chad Peterson. TIAA-CREF is searching for one more person to add to the small-cap team, added Mr. Peterson. Separately, William Knapp also joined NYLIM's equity group as a managing director and senior investment officer, said Ms. Nussen. It is a new position. He will be responsible for product development within the equity group, as well as client servicing. Mr. Knapp was a managing director and CIO of personal financial services at Northern Trust; he left the firm roughly two years ago, said spokeswoman Rebecca Hayne.
Amanda Sillars was appointed investment director at JPMorgan Asset Management, according to spokeswoman Emma Collins. Ms. Sillars will be based in London and report to Martin Porter, global head of equities and multiasset group. She will oversee 15 equity and multiasset investment teams globally, as well as the European corporate governance group. Ms. Sillars replaces David Paterson, who left earlier this year to join the National Association of Pension Funds as head of corporate governance. She was senior analyst at JPMorgan Private Bank International; information on a replacement was not available at press time.
