Throughout his 16 years at Wilsons, Mr Dellaway held a number of different roles, advising both retail and institutional clients, and Contango Asset Management managing director George Boubouras said his appointment would bring “some very high quality experience” to the business.
“With experience in successful trade executions on both the institutional and retail side, along with strong relationships with many industry stakeholders, Adam is an impressive operator who’ll fit the Contango culture well,” he said.
“The implementation of our growth strategy is well advanced, highlighted by some major achievements in 2016, and we don’t intend to slow down next year. Adam will be a fine addition as we look to take some more big strides.”
Commenting on his appointment, Mr Dellaway said it was “really exciting” to be joining the business in January 2017.
“I got to know many members of the team when working on the broking side, and I have a lot of respect for what they do. I’m looking forward to contributing to the Contango investment process,” he said.
In addition to Mr Dellaway, Contango Asset Management also announced the appointment Rob Nash in a senior advisory capacity to “help the launch of a Sydney office in early 2017”.
Mr Nash will commence in his new role “from late 2016”.
