Ex-Cohen and Steers Sales Head Lands a New Gig

Reported by Armie Margaret Lee

Former Cohen & Steers executive John McCombe has joined Richard Bernstein Advisors as co-president and director of sales and marketing.

NEW YORK, Sept. 9 -- Richard Bernstein Advisors LLC (RBA), an investment firm focused on "top-down" macro asset allocation and style investing, announced today that John McCombe has joined the firm as Co-President and Director of Sales & Marketing.

"We are very excited that John is joining our firm," said founder and Chief Executive Officer Richard Bernstein. "John's well-established track record in creating and distributing products through financial professionals speaks for itself. John has been very successful helping smaller asset managers get shelf space in the very crowded mutual fund arena, and he has strong relationships with key distribution partners. He will work with David Bloom, Co-President and Chief Operating Officer, and me to set strategic direction for the firm and to grow assets under management."

"I am thrilled to be joining RBA's executive team," McCombe added. "Rich is highly respected for his quantitative and contrarian approaches to asset and equity allocation, and I believe there are unique products and funds we can deliver that will help investors navigate the increasingly difficult investment landscape. What we build at RBA is going to address investors' concerns in an innovative way."

John was formerly EVP and Director of Sales & Marketing at Cohen & Steers, and he was instrumental in helping Tortoise Capital Advisors LLC raise over $1 billion in a closed-end fund offering this July.
