“We’ve seen increased interest in our products here in Australia, but also in our UK-based boutiques and their offerings,” Bingham said.
“As always, we’re focused on delivering the best outcomes for our clients across the globe, and that includes providing access to a suite of diverse and innovative investment strategies.
“Eric’s appointment will ensure our important institutional clients continue to receive the high level of service our investors expect of us.”
