Her previous experience also includes eight years at Challenger in the roles of senior legal counsel and as director of specialised product development and co-investment group.

UBS Australasia joint-country head Nick Hughes said that the manager was excited to have Ms Telfer join and drive its asset management business forward.

“Her strategic mindset coupled with her extensive Asia-Pacific asset management experience will be valuable in helping her position UBS Asset Management for the future,” said Mr Hughes.
