Yarra Capital Management has appointed Michael Gordon to the firm’s parent company board as a non-executive director and a chairman of its multi-asset allocation committee.

Gordon, who is a past group executive of Perpetual Investments and began his career with Rothschild, has also worked for a number of years in international investment markets. This included 10 years with Fidelity International in Sydney, Hong Kong and London and two years with BNP Paribas Investment Partners as chief information officer of its equities unit, based in London.

He also worked at Schroders where he spent around nine years holding a number of senior positions, including chief investment officer (CIO) of its Australian business.

Yarra Capital Management’s chairman, Mark Burgess, said: “Michael’s appointment is a significant milestone for Yarra capital Management.

“He brings a depth of global industry experience which is rarely found in the Australian market, and his expertise in risk management and asset allocation provides additional skills for the board and firm more generally.”
