Ex AMP Capital NZ chief, Bevan Graham, has resurfaced at Salt Funds Management just a day making an early exit from his old shop.
As reported yesterday, Rebekah Swan was named AMP Capital NZ chief, replacing Graham who was originally slated to leave the funds firm next January.
In a release today, Salt says Graham has joined the Auckland boutique as economist. He joins former colleague, Greg McMaster, who moved from AMP Capital to Salt after resigning in August.
The Salt statement says, the appointment of Graham reflected the manager’s “ongoing commitment to its clients as we continuously seek to ensure that we understand their values and strive to achieve the financial outcomes they desire”.
“A key part of this commitment is investing in the best people we can find to help us achieve this goal,” the release says. We believe that given Bevan’s experience and skills, along with his status as a trusted voice in the New Zealand financial markets, he is an ideal fit with Salt’s ambitions.”
AMP Capital is also one of Salt’s biggest clients after the boutique, which emerged out of BT Funds Management, landed an almost $700 million active NZ equities mandate from the Wellington-headquartered business in 2015.
Paul Harrison, Salt managing director, said: “Bevan’s ability to contribute to the efforts of our investment team as well as our marketing and client partnership capabilities, makes him a valuable addition to Salt.”
