Principal Global Investors have appointed Warwick Boys to a director role in the Australian office to help bolster the firms presence.
Mr Boys has been appointed to the role of director of institutional sales for Australia and will work alongside Michael Gaffney, Principal’s director of institutional sales.
Mr Boys will share Mr Gaffney’s mandate to develop new business opportunities and work with institutional investors to deliver solutions.
My Boys has worked in financial services for over 25 years, most recently at Fidelity International where he represented their offerings across all asset classes and helped define their strategic direction.
“Principal has a wide range of high-quality, high-performing investment capabilities – in particular, real estate (across the four quadrants of private/public debt and equity), global fixed income, alternatives and global equities.
“I am really excited about the opportunity of working with a world-class, global investment firm to support our institutional investors and identify solutions to help them achieve their ultimate objectives,” said Mr Boys.
He will report to Helen De Mestre, managing director and country head for Principal Global Investors (Australia), who was excited to welcome Mr Boys into the team.
“He brings to the role a strong track record of building long-term relationships with institutional investors and their advisers, and an exceptional reputation in the market. The Australian and New Zealand institutional market is a key area of focus for Principal, and I have confidence in his ability to help grow the business,” she said.
