Institutional Investor Names CEO
Rip Reeves, veteran of AEGIS Insurance Services and the Argo Group, will lead the company.
Rip Reeves will become the new CEO of Institutional Investor, beginning July 3.
Reeves, a 40-year industry veteran, was the chief investment officer and treasurer of AEGIS Insurance Services for more than a decade and was the global CIO of the Argo Group in Pembroke, Bermuda. The former insurance allocator has been working closely with II events, most recently as co-chair of the Institutional Investor Institute and Alternative Investor Institute along with Cynthia Steer. Reeves and Steer have helped execute II’s strategy to improve both the quality of content and the growth of the Institutes, according to the company. III and AII are private membership organizations.
After starting his career on the mortgage trading floor at Salomon Brothers in 1985, Reeves became a senior portfolio manager and asset allocation specialist for insurance and pension clients at BNY Mellon Asset Management and J.P. Morgan Investment Management (now BNY Mellon and J.P. Morgan Asset Management).
“With Rip’s deep understanding of our asset manager members and allocator audiences and under his seasoned leadership, we will further strengthen Institutional Investor’s commitment to delivering exceptional experiences for the communities we serve across the globe,” said Fran Cashman, Portfolio CEO overseeing Delinian brands including II, BCA, and NDR. Delinian, formerly known as Euromoney Institutional Investor, was acquired by private equity firm Epiris in November, 2022.
Reeves has a long history with II. “I am truly honored to step into the role of CEO for Institutional Investor,” he said. “The dedication and passion displayed by the talented teams at II have made a lasting impression on me, and our association over the years has been an invaluable contribution in my time as a CIO. Working closely with them in this new capacity is truly a privilege and an opportunity of a lifetime. I look forward to collaborating with our employees, clients, and audiences as we navigate this growth journey together.”
Reeves’ appointment reflects Delinian’s strategy to focus on and grow each of the individual brands that it bought from Euromoney. “We extend our warmest welcome to Rip and look forward to him developing and driving Institutional Investor forward with a client-centric mindset and by leveraging his extensive strategic leadership and industry experience,” said Andrew Pinder, CEO of Delinian. Delinian’s businesses deliver highly targeted data, research, insights and connections, profiling, and predictive analytics.
