Asset manager Henderson Global Investors has announced Tom Kelly will join the company’s distribution team.
Based in Brisbane, Mr Kelly will join the company as sales director, and will be responsible for serving retail clients.
“Queensland is one of our largest markets and is growing rapidly,” said Henderson head of distribution Matt Gaden.
“We are committed to providing best-in-class service to our national client base, and look forward to better supporting Queensland-based financial advisers with this newly created role and establishing an office in Brisbane.”
Mr Kelly brings more than a decades’ worth of experience to the new role, having previously worked at BlackRock where he managed key account and multi manager relationships.
Mr Gaden said the strength of the company’s distribution team was an important part of the business’ growth in Australia.
“Despite the challenging market conditions, we have seen solid net flows from both retail and institutional clients across a diverse range of our local and global investment capabilities,” he said.
“With an experienced national distribution team, we believe the foundations seem firmly laid to build out our Australian business in the years ahead.”
