Alessandra Tocco

Global Head of Capital Introductions, J.P. Morgan

Alessandra Tocco arrived at J.P. Morgan via its acquisition of her prior employer, Bear Stearns, in 2008. J.P. Morgan is the world’s second largest custodian with $22 trillion of assets, and Tocco views capital introductions as an extension of J.P. Morgan’s broader banking relationships, including a huge network of ties to leading institutional investors worldwide. The global reach of J.P. Morgan’s exposure marked an advance on Bear’s mainly US focus.

Tocco has been working with hedge funds globally ever since she left university. She had always been interested in finance, and reflects that “it was fortunate to start out in a managed futures manager monitoring position as my first job after studying finance at university. This was an exciting time for macro and CTAs as firms such as Tudor and Moore had recently launched,” Tocco enthuses.

Tocco spent a total of 16 years at Morgan Stanley and recalls how the due diligence (DD) work “enhanced my skill sets in analysis, writing and communicating.” After being immersed in DD, Tocco determined that acquiring some sales experience would assist her career progression. Morgan Stanley’s move into Investor Client Services offered the perfect opportunity to make a sideways move, which later led to a cap intro role at ABN Amro and a third one at Bear Stearns.
