Bennelong Funds Management (Bennelong) has strengthened its distribution team by appointing Tara Bell to the newly created position of Client Relationship Manager.
Tara has worked at Standard & Poor's (S&P) for the last five years, having been promoted to Associate Director in 2009. Prior to S&P, Tara was employed by UBS Asset Management and ING Investment Management.
She joins Bennelong's Distribution team, currently including Head of Distribution Andrew Aitken, and three Directors of Distribution Tim Bolger, Adam Tweedale and recently appointed Roger Phipps. Tara joins the Melbourne office, but will also work closely with the Sydney team who have carried considerable responsibility for asset consultant and research house relationships.
Bennelong Chief Executive Officer, Jarrod Brown, said the decision to appoint Tara is based on her extensive experience in senior financial services roles; particularly valuable for having worked in both the research house environment and retail investment sector. "Tara joins us with a wealth of industry experience. In a competitive funds management environment, maximising our communication to an increasingly diverse relationship base through highly qualified professionals is critically important," said Jarrod.
