BT appoints new CIO

BT Financial Group has announced the permanent replacement for chief investment officer Martyn Wild, who stepped down in March amid allegations of sexual misconduct.


Corrin Collocott has been confirmed as BT Financial Group's permanent chief investment officer. 

Mr Collocott has been acting in the position since March 2017 following the abrupt departure of CIO Martyn Wild

Mr Wild was the subject of various allegations of sexual misconduct, which were investigated by commercial law firm Clayton Utz. 

He was reinstated following the review, but later dismissed after further allegations by two women were reported by the Fairfax press. 

Fairfax reported Mr Wild made inappropriate contact and commentary, as well as telling a female staff member her appearance and weight would retard her career prospects. 

Mr Collocott joined BT in 2015 as head of diversified portfolios. 

He previously held roles at Sunsuper, Russell Investments and Tower Life.
