U.S. Bancorp Asset Management has named Matt Finn as the new lead manager of the First American Large Cap Value Fund, which had more than $949 million in assets under management as of March 31. The current fund manager, Brent Mellum, will continue to be an important member of the fund's management team, according to the firm.

Finn joins U.S. Bancorp from Advantus Capital Management, where he was head of equities, and before that Evergreen Investment Management, where he was chief investment officer for growth and income.

Finn, who has worked in investment management for 18 years, spent 13 of those years managing large-cap value products.

"We're very excited that Matt will be heading up our Large Cap Value Fund," said David Chalupnik, head of equities for U.S. Bancorp Asset Management. "He brings an exceptional history of achieving consistent, superior performance in large-cap value. We're delighted to have him join us and believe he'll fit well within our investment culture."
