Dawn Silvia was named a vice president and client portfolio manager for J.P. Morgan Asset Management’s insurance solutions team, based in Columbus, Ohio.
The position is new, confirmed Tim Holihen, a managing director and client portfolio manager with J.P. Morgan.
Ms. Silvia becomes the team’s 10th client portfolio manager. With insurance companies at home and abroad continuing to outsource more of their general account portfolios, further expansion might be needed, Mr. Holihen said.
Ms. Silvia was a senior vice president and co-head of insurance operations at Dwight Asset Management. A Dwight spokeswoman said Ms. Silvia won’t be replaced; Sean Saia, who previously served as co-head of insurance with her, has been named sole head of insurance.
