Ms Miller joins from PM Capital, where she spent eight years as an investment analyst covering global equity companies. She was previously a research analyst at Perpetual and holds a bachelor of commerce in economics and finance from the University of Sydney.
As principal, ECP said that Ms Miller’s responsibilities will include identifying and researching companies suitable for responsible long-term sustainable investment and considering their inclusion in a concentrated portfolio of high-quality companies alongside the investment team.
She will be based in Sydney and report to ECP chairman and CIO Dr Manny Pohl.
“Annabelle brings with her a wealth of knowledge of global companies and international markets, spanning more than 10 years,” said Dr Pohl.
“Her experience with in-depth analysis of global companies across a range of sectors will be very valuable to us.”
Meanwhile, Ms Rigby will join the ECP Analyst Pathway Program, which the firm explained is focused on providing foundational knowledge across investment markets, business strategy, forensic accounting, corporate finance, economics and the investment process.
She was formerly an investment associate at MA Financial Group and a broker liaison officer and associate mortgage expert at Lendi. Her qualifications include a bachelor of business in accounting and finance from the University of Technology Sydney.
“Both Annabelle and Lauren will play an important role in building out the resources of the firm. They have diverse backgrounds and will contribute meaningfully to our investment capabilities.”
