Lonsec has bolstered its investment research team to boost its capabilities within the fund manager research space.
Peter Green has been appointed sector manager for Australian equities, with responsibility for leading Lonsec’s coverage of Australian equity managed fund products. He will also retain his current position as head of listed products, covering Lonsec’s universe of exchange-traded funds and other listed products.
“Peter is one of the most experienced and consummate research analysts in the Australian market, so we are very pleased that he will be moving into this expanded role,” said Lonsec research executive director Lorraine Robinson.
“Peter will now have responsibility for leading our listed product research as well as our Australian equities manager research, allowing us to benefit from Peter’s knowledge and experience in this critical sector. Peter is highly respected among fund managers and has been instrumental in the development of our direct equities research capability, so this is a natural fit for him.”
Lonsec has also appointed Chad Troja as head of direct equities. Mr Troja has been a member of Lonsec’s direct equities team since 2017 and has more than 15 years’ experience in equities research and funds management. Asha Rahman has also joined Lonsec’s research team as an associate investment analyst, while Rish Chaudhuri will commence as an investment analyst in October.
