In addition, she will be assuming the mantle of responsibility for developing State Street’s InfraHedge offering. Ms. Datson joins State Street from Deutsche Bank having worked as its global co-head of hedge fund sales.
According to a recent statement from Mr. Sullivan on the appointment, “There is a huge opportunity in the managed accounts space as large asset owners start to take much greater direct control over their investments and behave increasingly like asset managers. Effie’s global experience will be invaluable as we continue to grow and strengthen our alternatives business.”
