Outsourced-CIO (OCIO) Hirtle Callaghan has appointed former New York City pensions advisor Ranji Nagaswami as CEO.
Nagaswami replaces co-founder Jonathan Hirtle, who will remain at the firm as executive chairman to work full-time focusing on clients and strategy, the firm announced Tuesday.
“Ranji Nagaswami is an
exceptional leader and an extraordinarily talented industry executive,” Hirtle
said in a statement. “She brings tremendous additional strength to our
executive team as we enter the next phase of our firm’s development and growth.”
The new CEO joins from Corsair
Capital, where she was a senior advisor for two years. Prior to that, Nagaswami held
roles at Bridgewater Associates, AllianceBernstein, and UBS Asset Management.
From 2010 to 2012, she was chief investment advisor to New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg, counseling on the city’s $150 billion retirement system.
“Hirtle Callaghan is a firm of
investment industry idealists with a history of innovation in managing complete,
custom-designed investment solutions for its clients,” Nagaswami said in a statement.
“I am thrilled to be at its helm and find ways to strengthen our conflict-free,
value creation model for the benefit of investors seeking complete fiduciary
alignment in their outsourced investment department.”
According to CIO’s OCIO survey, Hirtle Callaghan managed $24.1 billion of outsourced family office, endowment, foundation, health care, and pension assets as of January 2016.
