Global asset and wealth management consultancy further strengthens its market-leading Distribution Practice
Alpha FMC (“Alpha”), the global leader in asset and wealth management consulting, today announces the hire of Nick Dekker, a well-respected industry distribution and risk expert. Nick joins Alpha as a Director, to lead the Distribution Operations proposition in the UK. Nick joins from KPMG, where he has spent a decade working within their Asset Management Consulting team, focusing on efficiency savings and risk reduction in Distribution and Operations functions.
Alpha already has an industry-leading Distribution team, which plays a central role in helping its clients maximise their AUM, and to retain & delight clients. In his new role Nick will bring his combined experience of consulting, assurance, and in-house risk, to support clients’ Distribution teams with operating cost-efficiently, at pace, and within risk appetite.
Nick has over 11 years’ experience, including helping firms with rebates and commissions management, obligations and legal agreement management, and due diligence and ongoing oversight. He also spent 6 months as Interim Head of Risk at a £100bn+ UK asset manager.
The continued expansion of the Distribution practice reflects Alpha’s continued growth in this space. Since its inception over 17 years ago, Alpha has built a team of deep asset and wealth management experts and is now the leading global consulting firm to the industry.
We've seen a significant increase in the value that our clients place on creating a scalable, global operating platform for Distribution. Having Nick in the team means that we can offer the level of experience and expertise on the aspects of data governance, management processes and operational efficiencies that we offer our clients across the Distribution operating model. We're excited to be able to bring Nick's expertise to our client projects where we are re-engineering the client experience to meet increasingly complex and time-sensitive demands.Neil Curham, Alpha FMC Global Head of Distribution
Effective management of risk and cost within Distribution is key to achieving the right outcomes for asset managers and their clients. I am looking forward to helping our clients with this in these challenging times, and am hugely energised by the impressive quality of Alpha’s people, Distribution experience and culture.Nick Dekker, Distribution Operations Director
