In the role, Truong will report to joint portfolio managers Justin Blaess and Chris Bedingfield. He holds a Bachelor of Commerce and a graduate diploma in Chartered Accounting and is currently studying the CFA, Quay said.
Bedingfield said the appointment has been made during a period of strong growth for Quay Global Investors.
“Mr Truong’s financial services experiences, including real estate funds management and as an equity research analyst, make him a good fit for the role and the team at this crucial point in the business’s evolution,” he said.
The Quay Global Real Estate Fund is now available through BT Panorama, BT Wrap, Hub24, Macquarie Wrap, Netwealth and Powerwrap. It has also been added to a number of model portfolios, Quay said.
“Next year will mark the strategy’s five-year track record, and adviser interest in the strategy – which has exceeded its performance expectations for every time frame since inception in July 2014 – is gaining momentum,” Bedingfield said.
