Connor, Clark & Lunn Financial appoints Head of Institutional Sales in US and Opens Office in Manhattan

TORONTO, Oct. 1, 2013 /CNW/ - Connor, Clark & Lunn Financial Group (CC&L Financial Group), the largest independent and privately owned asset manager in Canada whose affiliate investment managers collectively manage over $46 billion in assets, today announced that Eric Hasenauer has joined the firm as Senior Vice President and Head of US Institutional Sales.  Having just opened a US-based office for Connor Clark & Lunn (USA) in New York, Mr. Hasenauer reports to Warren Stoddart, Co-CEO for CC&L Financial Group.

Mr. Hasenauer will be responsible for developing distribution of CC&L Financial Group's institutional asset management services in the US.  Mr. Hasenauer hired Gary Simonette as Vice President of Institutional Sales as part of the planned growth initiative for the firm in the US marketplace.  Hasenauer and Simonette worked together at Aviva Investors until May of this year.

"Eric brings to CC&L Financial Group significant experience in the institutional and sub-advisory marketplace and has had success in building new client relationships and sales teams for global organizations seeking to establish a brand inside the United States.  As our multi-boutique structure continues to grow, both in terms of assets and capabilities, it will become increasingly important to attract individuals like Eric from locations outside of our core market in Canada." said Mr. Stoddart.

Hasenauer most recently served as Managing Director and Head of Institutional Sales at Aviva Investors North America, where he was responsible for direct sales and client service to the institutional marketplace in the US and Canada.  Prior to that, he led the sub-advisory business for Credit Suisse Asset Management in the Americas.

He graduated with a B.A. from Williams College and an M.B.A in finance from Fordham University.
