BetaShares has confirmed Brendan Prowse to lead its sales and client services in Western Australia, where he’ll bring 35 years’ experience across funds management and financial advice.
Mr Prowse has previously worked at Vanguard, AMP and Zurich in distribution and sales roles and started his career as a certified financial planner.
“I’m excited to join one of Australia’s largest, experienced and dedicated distribution teams in the funds management industry. I’m looking forward to educating financial advisers about the benefits of ETFs, as part of a growing team,” he said.
“BetaShares has the most extensive and compelling range of ETFs in the Australian market and it’s great to be joining the team at such an exciting time for the business and industry more generally.”
The appointment coincides with news that BetaShares has launched a new Perth office with CEO Alex Vynokur saying it means big things for the company alongside Mr Prowse’s hire.
“We are delighted to welcome someone of Brendan’s calibre to our growing team. Brendan is well known and highly regarded across the financial services industry, particularly in his home state of Western Australia,” Mr Vynokur said.
“BetaShares has been fortunate to benefit from strong growth and Brendan’s appointment allows us to expand our presence in Western Australia by adding a dedicated resource for the more than 1,700 financial advisers in that state.”
