Allstate Selects Voya Investment Management for Portfolio Mandate

NEW YORK--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- Voya Investment Management, the asset management business of Voya Financial, Inc. (NYSE: VOYA), announced today that it was selected by Allstate (NYSE: ALL) to manage the firm’s $850 million commercial mortgage portfolio effective Nov. 14, 2022. Allstate will retain ownership of the assets, which will transfer to Voya IM under a separately managed account and the existing assets will remain part of Allstate’s portfolio. Voya will be responsible for future originations consistent with maintaining a target allocation to the asset class on behalf of Allstate.

In addition, as part of the agreement, Allstate will transition approximately seven employees who constitute their commercial mortgage team to Voya Investment Management (Voya IM). These employees will be integrated into Voya IM’s commercial mortgage team, led by Greg Michaud, and will help manage Voya’s commercial mortgage mandates, including the Allstate portfolio.

“We are very excited that Voya IM was selected to manage this important mandate from Allstate. We have an incredibly talented team at Voya, and Allstate’s trust in us is a testament to that fact,” said Michaud. “I look forward to their high-quality investment team joining ours to help us grow this critical investment sector for our firm.”

“Our commercial mortgage portfolio has demonstrated outstanding performance over time and the asset class remains an attractive allocation in the portfolio. However, a substantial proportion of our commercial mortgage assets were held in our life company entities, which were sold last year, and it is no longer optimal to maintain this capability internally,” said Mike Moran, Managing Director & Vice President of Allstate’s Real Estate Investment Group. “Voya IM has a large and active mortgage loan platform with significant third-party asset management capabilities, providing both sound stewardship of our assets and career growth opportunities for our highly talented commercial mortgage team.”
