HESTA has appointed Luke Galloway as its general manager – strategic tilting to help build out its internal investment capability and deepen relationships with key partners.
Galloway joined the industry superannuation fund in November last year as its investment adviser.
HESTA chief investment officer, Sonya Sawtell-Rickson, said since joining the fund, Galloway had demonstrated skills and experience in derivative trading, and dynamic asset allocation decision though a period of significant market volatility.
Galloway would be responsible for managing dynamic asset allocation, rebalancing and overlay process, and would report to the head of portfolio design which was yet to fill.
“Luke will work closely with our trading partners and our Investment Execution team to manage and minimise execution risks, while ensuring portfolios are responsive to market conditions and opportunities,” Sawtell-Rickson said.
Galloway had more than 16 years of experience in macro and investment research, portfolio and exposure management, and investment internalisation.
“It’s exciting to join the fund at this early stage of its program to build out internal capability and embed a total portfolio approach that focuses on strong collaboration across various teams,” Galloway said.
