Eaton Vance Announces Launch of Institutional Cash Management Services
BOSTON, Feb. 5, 2013
BOSTON, Feb.5, 2013 /PRNewswire/ --Eaton Vance Management (Eaton Vance), a
subsidiary of Eaton Vance Corp. (NYSE: EV), today announced the formation of
Eaton Vance Institutional Cash Management Services (ICMS). ICMS will provide
cash management services to institutional investors in the U.S. and
internationally through customized separate accounts. Compared to
institutional money market funds, separately managed cash accounts can offer
higher yield potential, lower costs, greater transparency and more client
control, while eliminating the risk of impaired liquidity or loss of value due
to the actions of other fund investors.
In conjunction with the launch of ICMS, Eaton Vance has hired a team of
investment professionals who formerly worked together managing institutional
cash management businesses at Dwight Asset Management (2009-2012), Lehman
Brothers Asset Management (2003-2009) and Allmerica Asset Management
(1995-2003). Joining the ICMS unit of Eaton Vance are: John C. Donohue, Vice
President and Head of Institutional Cash Management Services; Robert J.
Swidey, Vice President and Risk Manager; Timothy J. Robey, Vice President and
Portfolio Manager; Jeffrey R. Boutin, Vice President and Credit
Analyst–Structured Finance; and Kevin E. Zimmerman, Vice President and
Director of Business Development. Mr. Boutin and Mr. Zimmerman began working
with the other team members in 2003 and 2006, respectively. This group brings
to Eaton Vance a disciplined, risk-managed approach to managing cash assets, a
history of successful collaboration and a record of favorable investment
performance and high client satisfaction.
Also joining ICMS as a portfolio manager will be Maria Cappellano,
co-portfolio manager of Eaton Vance U.S. Government Money Market Fund and
Eaton Vance's primary portfolio manager and trader for money market and short
duration portfolios. Ms. Cappellano is a Vice President of Eaton Vance and
has been a member of its Investment Grade Fixed Income group since 1998. She
earned a B.S. in business administration with a concentration in finance,
summa cum laude, from Northeastern University.
The ICMS unit will service approximately $3 billion in cash assets held across
various Eaton Vance separate accounts and mutual funds. In addition to its
dedicated staff, the ICMS unit will draw upon the investment and operational
resources of Eaton Vance's Investment Grade Fixed Income group. Mr. Donohue
will report to Thomas H. Luster, CFA, and Kathleen C. Gaffney, CFA,
Co-Directors of Investment Grade Fixed Income.
"Eaton Vance views this as a particularly opportune time to enter the
institutional cash management business," said Thomas E. Faust, Jr., Chairman
and Chief Executive Officer of Eaton Vance Corp. "Large corporate cash
balances, dislocation in the institutional money fund business and a thirst
for yield in a low rate environment create demand for new cash management
solutions. Given the experience and track record of John Donohue and his team
and the broader resources of the Eaton Vance income organization, we see
ourselves as ideally positioned to serve this growing market."
"My colleagues and I are very excited to join Eaton Vance," said Mr. Donohue.

needs of institutional investors."
