MEDIA RELEASE Robeco has appointed Chris Wildman as institutional sales director. Based in Sydney, Chris will report to the head of Robeco Australia, Stephen Dennis, and work closely with Melbourne-based institutional sales director Simon Good.
Stephen Dennis said the new appointment is a result of continued business growth in the Australian market, with funds under management for the business now in excess of AUD 5 billion: “Chris is a welcome addition to the team, and he has a strong track record in working with a variety of clients, with more than 19 years’ experience in the financial services industry. As our business grows we want to ensure that we continue to be resourced properly, to work collaboratively with our clients across asset classes. Chris’ appointment comes at an opportune time, as we are seeing a significant increase in the demand for sustainability considerations to be integrated into client portfolios.”
