Pinnacle Investment Management has added Wes Campbell to expand its institutional distribution team as director, distribution, based in Melbourne.
Campbell had over 20 years of investment management experience and was most recently executive director and head of business development at JCP Investment Partners and was also a senior portfolio manager with the firm.
Before JCP, Campbell had spent 10 years as portfolio manager and senior dealer at Jardine Fleming Capital Partners, part of JP Morgan Asset Management, and before that worked for Macquarie Group.
Andrew Chambers, Pinnacle executive director, said it was rare to find a senior sales professional that had experience as a portfolio manager and dealer.
“Such a unique combination gives Wes a competitive edge in uncovering needs and identifying solutions with an increasingly sophisticated and rapidly evolving institutional investor base here in Australia and offshore,” Chambers said.
“In addition, Wes’s boutique investment experience gives him a deep understanding of the unique challenges faced by independent firms in commercialising their vision.”
