Tyndall Investments has appointed Mr Aaron Russell to the role of national key account manager, based in Sydney.
Mr Russell will be responsible for building and maintaining relationships with financial planners and intermediaries in NSW, ACT and Western Australia. The appointment follows the promotion last year of Mr Andrew Julius, who previously held the position, to Tyndall’s head of retail.
Mr Russell has over 13 years financial services experience in both Australia and the UK, most recently with Vanguard Investments as business development manager.
He started his career in England as a financial adviser with Loring Walls Financial Services, and worked as an equities investments specialist with Charles Schwab Stockbrokers before moving into business development roles with Jupiter Unit Trust Managers and MLC Investments in the UK.
Mr Russell holds an honours degree in economics and business studies from the University of Lincolnshire and Humberside.
Mr Julius said that Mr Russell’s appointment contributes to the depth and range of experience in the team.
“Aaron’s well-established relationships with a number of dealer groups, and his broad experience in the financial services industry, will be key to further developing our retail business.
“In particular, Aaron’s knowledge of markets will enable him to help advisers develop suitable portfolio and asset allocation strategies in a changing economic and regulatory environment,” Mr Julius said.
Tyndall Investments Australia offers Australian equities and Australian and global fixed interest funds to retail and institutional investors in Australia. It has over A$22 billion in funds under management (as at 28 February 2011). Tyndall Investments is a wholly owned subsidiary of Nikko Asset Management Co., Ltd., one of the largest asset management companies in Japan with approximately A$125 billion in funds under management (as at 28 February 2011).
