Former Sunsuper executive Corrin Collocott will take on the newly created role of head of diversified portfolio management, super and investments.
BT chief investment officer Patrick Farrell said Mr Collocott will bring valuable skills to the firm at a time when superannuation investment strategies become increasingly important.
“As superannuation funds continue to grow, so too will the demand for specialist investment services that cater for the needs of fund members over their lifetime and through to retirement,” said Mr Farrell.
“Corrin’s broad experience, as well as his specialisation in superannuation will help ensure that we continue to generate the best outcomes for fund members throughout their superannuation journey.”
In addition to Mr Collocott, Sonia Bluzmanis and Daniel Park will join BT as portfolio managers.
Ms Bluzmanis, who joins the firm from Colonial First State, will manage BT's Australian equities portfolio. Mr Park, who joins from Perpetual, will manage defensive assets.
“Both Sonia and Daniel join BT with over 10 years’ investment management and financial services experience,” said Mr Farrell.
“These new appointments will strengthen our existing capabilities, and ensure we can continue to deliver strong outcomes for our customers.”
