US-based fund manager GQG Partners has appointed Jane Wang in the newly-created role of client service and operations associate, continuing its expansion into the Australian market.
Wang’s appointment followed that of Jeremy Crowley as director of institutional markets in January this year and Daniel Bullock as director of wholesale markets in July, 2019.
Laird Abernathy, managing director for GQG Partners’ Australian subsidiary, said Wang’s appointment reflected the growth of the Australian business that was established 18 months ago.
“Jane has over 16 years’ experience in banking and financial services, and her appointment is a reflection of our goal to deliver the highest quality service experience to our existing clients and to ensure we are resourced appropriately for further expansion,” Abernathy said.
“Her role includes both client service and operational functions, providing our clients a local contact they can utilise for such queries.
“Her strong technical knowledge as well as her track record in client service roles will be particularly useful in this newly created role.”
GQG Partners was co-founded in 2016 by Rajiv Jain and opened its Australian office in 2018.
It had A$47.8 billion in funds under management (FUM) as of 31 March, 2020, while the local subsidiary has A$3.6 billion FUM.
