Fixed-income investment manager Cameron Hume has picked a new independent non-executive director.
Alla Bashenko has taken the role after having a global career in financial services, predominantly with Goldman Sachs and Nomura International.
Ms Bashenko is the second independent appointment Cameron Hume has made to its board, following its choice of Sir Sandy Crombie as chairman in 2018.
Sir Crombie commented: “Her international expertise, contacts and knowledge of global markets will bring an exceptional bank of experience to the board.”
“Her skills are complementary to those of the existing board members and her different perspective will be extremely valuable to Cameron Hume.”
Ms Bashenko said: “Having a strong commitment to responsible investing and ESG principles is very important to me, and that was something I found at Cameron Hume too.”
“As a relatively young business, with a strong foundation, the basis is there for growing into an extremely successful firm and I am excited to be involved and do my part to help Cameron Hume achieve its full potential.”
The firm, which was founded in 2011 by directors Chris Torkington and Guy Cameron, now has 16 staff and US$720 million ($1 billion) in assets under management.
