Frontier Advisors has announced five new appointments to its consulting team which will bolster the key business areas such as investment strategy, alternative, debt, technology and general consulting, the firm said.
The new appointments included Paul Tulloch, Iain McMahon, Ann Tran, Thushani de Silva and Donna Davis.
Both Tulloch, who has eight years of experience as a derivatives trader with Optiver, and Davis, whose prior experience included AustralianSuper, Commonwealth Bank and ANZ Bank, would join the alternatives and derivative research team.
McMahon, who joined from J.P. Morgan’s London office where he spent the last four years providing quantitative and qualitative portfolio analysis, would be operating as a consultant in the debt and currency team.
Tran would join Frontier’s capital markets and asset allocation team from a background in economic research, specifically applied econometrics, macroeconometrics modelling for policy evaluation and analysis, and macro prudential policies for emerging markets while de Silva would move into a client facing advisory role with Frontier after a decade spent at Zenith Investment Partners, Capital Alliance and PwC.
“We’ve been recruiting for some time and it’s quite exciting to be able to bring a significant number of highly credentialled people into the business. These roles represent a significant investment in developing our proposition for the rapidly evolving needs of our existing clients, in particular,” Frontier Advisors’ chief executive, Andrew Polson, said.
The firm said it still had another senior appointment to complete shortly which would see nine people join it in a “relatively short timeframe”.
