Bennelong Funds Management (Bennelong) is pleased to announce that Mark Burgess and Kristiaan Rehder will be joining a new Bennelong boutique to manage an Australian equity long short absolute return fund.
Mark and Kristiaan will join Bennelong on 1 September 2011, forming a yet to be named investment business of which they will be majority shareholders.
"The team, which was recently called ‘an undiscovered gem' by a leading research house, will be a welcome addition to our growing suite of asset managers," said Jarrod Brown, Bennelong's Chief Executive Officer. "They have tremendous past performance, a robust investment process and are very highly regarded in the absolute return space. We look forward to building a quality asset management business together."
