Perpetual has made three appointments to the group’s global distribution team, including two in the Australia team.
Ben Daly has been appointed as director of institutional business for Perpetual Asset Management Australia, while Nicole Aubrey had been appointed as senior manager national accounts for Australia.
Rob Kenyon has been appointed as head of intermediary and business management, Americas, and would be based in New York.
Daly had previously held senior leadership roles at T Rowe Price and Goldman Sachs, while Aubrey had over 18 years’ experience in financial services and had held roles with HRL Morrison, Pendal Group and Investors Mutual.
Daly and Kenyon had already commenced their roles, but Aubrey would commence in early March.
Adam Quaife, Perpetual global head of distribution, said strengthening their distribution capability in Australia and overseas remained essential as they looked to build on their existing presence and extend the reach of Trillium and Barrow Hanley.
“In addition, we are now seeing a rotation to recovery and an uptick in client search activity for our broad capabilities, so the team is now very well placed and well-resourced to further bring our strategies to market going forward,” Quaife said.
“As Perpetual continues to accelerate its global distribution strategy across different capabilities and geographic markets, these appointments in both Australia and the US, are key in helping us open up new markets and opportunities.
“With impressive track records and deep expertise across institutional and retail markets, it’s great to have Ben, Nicole and Rob join our distribution team of now more than 70, to further extend our reach in Australia and globally over time.”
