Colchester Global Investors has appointed Monica Hood as a business development manager. She comes from Centuria Capital where she spent the last two years as a relationship manager. Hood also spent time in sales roles with Charter Hall and Folkestone Limited. She spent more than 16 years as a senior BDM with Hunter Hall.
I am pleased to welcome Monica to our Australian team," said Colchester Global Investors' Australian head of distribution Angela MacPherson. "With our strong research ratings and growing coverage on model portfolios, APLs, and platforms, I know she has the candour and gravitas to really connect with advisers."
Hood's appointment follows an increase in allocations to Colchester's global sovereign bond portfolios. MacPherson says the that Colchester's defensive style appeals to investors with concern about diversification of risk exposure around assets like property and equities. "Advisers like the simplicity and transparency of our funds that make it easy for investors to understand."
Hood said she's delighted to join Colchester's Australian team. "For me, Colchester's appeal is its integrity, its single focus on managing sovereign bonds, and its 20-year plus consistent track record. I look forward to working with both new and supporting advisors to build on our considerable distribution network of APLs, model portfolios, SMA, and managed account arrangements."
