WEST PALM BEACH, Fla., Jan. 23, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- INTECH Investment Management LLC (INTECH) today announced that it expanded its client-services team naming Richard Yasenchak, CFA, CFP, to the newly created position of client portfolio manager. In this role, Yasenchak, who joined the firm on January 13, will work closely with INTECH's client- and consultant-relations teams serving as an investment expert for client and consultant meetings, sales presentations and other campaigns, both in the U.S. and globally. He will work from the firm's global headquarters in West Palm Beach, Florida, reporting to John F. Brown, executive vice president, head of global client development.
"As client demands for more access to INTECH expertise and research increase, we decided to create a position that would augment our relationship with clients and consultants. We strongly believe that Richard brings the relevant background and expertise to our firm to achieve that goal," said John Brown. "We are confident that his experience, most recently at Russell Investments, provides a strong foundation for him to provide our clients and their consultants with in-depth insights into INTECH's strategies, such as performance attribution, performance trends and other salient issues."
INTECH Chief Executive Officer and CIO, Dr. Adrian Banner, noted, "We welcome Richard to our team and know that his experience and skill set will help us continue the longstanding tradition of providing excellent service to our clients and their consultants. We are very pleased to have Richard join INTECH."
Added Yasenchak, "As a global institutional money manager, I was attracted to INTECH's unique volatility-capture investment process and its commitment to delivering outcomes that matter to its clients in meeting their long-term funding obligations. INTECH's commitment to offering customized investment solutions to its clients, with the goal of generating consistent long-term alpha, within a risk-managed framework and through all market environments, is one of the primary qualities that attracted me to the firm."
Prior to joining INTECH, Yasenchak spent more than eight years at Russell Investments. Most recently he held the position of U.S. equity portfolio manager, overseeing approximately $5 billion in U.S. quantitative and fundamental equity multi-strategy mutual funds, corporate pension, profit sharing, endowment and foundation plans.
