Industry superannuation fund Cbus has announced the appointments of Linda Cunningham and Anna Weickart to its public markets team.
Within the public markets team, Ms Cunningham will take on the role of manager of debt within the alternative debt sector – with Ms Weickart appointed as a senior investment analyst.
Ms Cunningham makes the move to Cbus from IFM Investors, where she held the title of executive director of debt instruments, and in her new role will be responsible for designing and implementing internally managed strategies.
Making the move from Willis Towers Watson, Ms Weickart has close to two decades’ experience in manager research, both within Australia and Germany, and will oversee international and Australian equities.
Cbus has also appointed Alex Miller as its newest infrastructure transaction specialist.
Mr Miller has worked in greenfield and brownfield infrastructure transactions for more than 18 years, and has held roles with KPMG and BOS International prior to his new role.
Cbus executive manager of investment strategy Kristian Fok said the new appointments were part of a bigger push to expand the business’ capacity and better align themselves with the future.
“We are so pleased to welcome Linda, Anna and Alex, bringing their depth of experience and talent to the team. We’re looking to appoint a significant number of new roles in the next few months as we go through our capability building stage,” Mr Fok said.
“Continuing to attract people of this calibre this will put us in a great position for future growth.”
