“Barbara is a seasoned investment professional with 30 years of investment experience. She is well respected both within our industry and with our clients,” said Toms. “Since joining Voya seven years ago as head of asset allocation for MASS, Barbara has been a key driver of alpha and risk management for our multi-asset platform and has both attracted and developed a strong team of talented investment professionals.
“In the nearly 20 years since Paul founded the MASS team, it has grown to over $31 billion in assets. In addition, Paul has served as a mentor to many of our employees and has been instrumental in the creation and evolution of Voya IM’s award-winning culture. I know our MASS team will build upon the success and client-centric commitment to delivering results that was started by Paul,” added Toms.
Reinhard joined Voya IM in 2016 and most recently served as head of asset allocation. She is also a portfolio manager on Voya IM’s target date and multi-asset strategies. Prior to joining Voya IM, Reinhard was a managing director and chief investment officer in Credit Suisse's private banking division.
