Hyperion Asset Management has expanded with three new additions to its team.
The fund manager has announced the appointments of Alexandra Clarke as general executive, Thomas Withers as head of risk and compliance and Sam Parcell as research associate, all effective immediately.
Ms Clarke previously worked as a senior investment and macro research analyst at ClearView Wealth Limited where she was assigned in the development of ClearView’s asset allocation strategy for its multi-asset class portfolios. She was also a former senior analyst at the Reserve Bank of Australia (RBA) where she managed its foreign currency reserve portfolio.
Mr Withers joins the company with over 20 years of experience in investment management specialising in risk management, performance analysis and project management. He makes the move to Hyperion from Northcape Capital where he worked as its risk and compliance manager.
Mr Parcell takes on his new position having most recently worked as an investment analyst at Sandhurst Trustees for over two years. He also previously worked at Bendigo Bank as a credit and treasury analyst.
“We’re pleased to announce that Hyperion is bolstering its team this month with three high-quality additions,” said Mark Arnold, Hyperion’s chief investment officer and managing director.
“Thomas, Alexandra and Sam bring together 40 years of experience to our team with a diverse array of industry nous and capabilities across investing, risk management, compliance and funds management.”
The new appointments will help Hyperion bolster its investment performance team and invest in its own future according to deputy CIO and executive director Jason Orthman.
“Thomas, Alexandra and Sam together have excellent industry experience and capabilities that align with our commitment to be Australia’s leading fund manager for retail and institutional investors,” he said.
“Hyperion is well-placed for growth and will focus on continuing to deliver strong results for its clients and shareholders.”
