AUSTRALIA - QIC has appointed Matthew Peter as chief economist to oversee strategic investment research and macro-economic analysis.
Brad Holzberger, CEO, QIC Asset Management, said: "Our aim is to always be well informed about emerging themes being debated across the Australian and international investment industry."
"Matthew will ensure we stay at the research forefront and quickly identify emerging trends," he added.
Peter was previously at Tactical Global Management (TGM) as global tactical asset allocation (GTAA) and global macro manager.
QIC said he had a long experience of identifying long term themes in global markets and investigating the impact of global events on investments and macro economics.
Peter said: "QIC is renowned for its innovation and I look forward to researching emerging investment themes and asset classes and challenging existing investment processes."
In May, QIC announced it would shake up its asset management structure by separating its alpha and beta departments.
QIC said the restructure would provide clients with better investment outcomes through improved efficiencies and information sharing.
