GQG Partners Continues Expansion in Australia
SYDNEY — 18 April 2020 — US-based fund manager GQG Partners has continued its expansion in Australia with the appointment of Jane Wang to the newly created role of Client Service and Operations Associate.
GQG Partners is an independent Florida-based boutique equities manager that seeks to identify enduring quality characteristics in reasonably priced global equities with an objective of long-term capital appreciation. It was co-founded in 2016 by Rajiv Jain and opened its Australian office in 2018. It has A$47.8 billion in funds under management (as at 31 March 2020).
Ms Wang’s appointment follows that of Jeremy Crowley as Director of Institutional Markets in January this year and Daniel Bullock as Director of Wholesale Markets in July 2019.
Laird Abernethy, Managing Director for GQG Partners’ Australian subsidiary, said that Ms Wang’s appointment reflects the strong growth in the Australian business since it was established 18 months ago.
“GQG Partners already has a strong footprint in the institutional market in Australia, with more than 30 local investors and over A$3.6 billion1 in funds under management in the space, and the next step in our long-term strategy is to further grow our presence in the local market.
“Jane has over 16 years’ experience in banking and financial services, and her appointment is a reflection of our goal to deliver the highest quality service experience to our existing clients and to ensure we are resourced appropriately for further expansion. Her role includes both client service and operational functions, providing our clients a local contact they can utilise for such queries.
“Her strong technical knowledge as well as her track record in client service roles will be particularly useful in this newly created role,” Mr Abernethy said.
Ms Wang joins GQG Partners from BNP Paribas where she held a number of administration and client service responsibilities. She has also worked with Aberdeen Standard Investments and HSBC Australia. She holds a bachelor of business (accounting and finance) and a diploma of business and commerce from the University of Technology Sydney.
