CenterSquare Investment Management, an investment boutique of BNY Mellon, has appointed Scott Crowe to Chief Investment Strategist. In this newly created position, Crowe reports directly to Todd Briddell, CenterSquare's Chief Executive Officer and Chief Investment Officer.
Crowe will focus on CenterSquare's listed real estate and infrastructure businesses and his duties will include the identification and development of new investment strategies to provide comprehensive real asset investment solutions to CenterSquare's client base. He will also work to enhance CenterSquare's already robust research and investment processes, and will work alongside Briddell to assist with investment risk oversight, providing additional insights into strategic risk management. Crowe will also work directly with CenterSquare's clients, providing education and guidance on the market and helping them execute their investment goals.
"This industry demands early market trend identification amid an increasingly complex and competitive environment, and as the demand for real assets across investor types and strategies increases, we are excited to respond with better and more dynamic solutions," says Briddell. "Deepening our senior management talent with Scott Crowe's experience will only further our ability to generate alpha and be a strong fiduciary to our clients."
Crowe has held positions with several investment management firms, including Global Head of Real Estate for UBS Equities Research from 2000 to 2007. He also served as a Global Portfolio Manager for Cohen & Steers from 2007 to 2012, where he led the investment and research team of over 20 portfolio managers and analysts, and most recently was a Managing Director and Chief Investment Officer of Liquid Alternatives at Resource Real Estate.
