AUSTRALIA - Perennial Investment Partners Limited is looking to appoint a senior investment management professional to head up Perennial Investment, its Australian-based boutique investment business in international shares.
“Perennial International ranks very well in performance surveys so this new appointment is not about improving performance, but is about building the business,” said Perennial managing director Anthony Patterson (pictured).
The specialist, active investment firm is also seeking three investment managers, increasing the International team, which currently stands at 10.
“We are looking both on and offshore for candidates to join our International team,” Patterson said.
“For the head role, it’s a unique opportunity for a senior investment professional to take responsibility for the development of the international investment management business, that has build a strong track record over the past five years.”
In another management shift, Kerry Series, manager of Perennial’s Asian ex Japan portfolios, is leaving the company with his responsibilities to be taken on by Dian Lin, manager of the Japan portfolio for the past five years.
The Perennial group has nearly Aus$10bn under management across five businesses.
