Sovereign bond fund Colchester Global Investors has appointed Angela MacPherson as head of distribution Australia, responsible for introducing Colchester's Global Government Bond Fund to the Australian intermediary market.
MacPherson has 20 years' experience in the financial services industry, including senior roles at AMP Capital, AXA and Macquarie Bank and, most recently, as a national key account manager at Challenger.
Singapore managing director Paul Allen said: "The appointment of someone of the calibre of Angela will be instrumental for Colchester to build a meaningful presence in the intermediary space in Australia over the medium to long term.
"It is an exciting time for the business, we are pursuing a deliberate strategy of diversifying both our client base and also our geographic location. Now with our new office here in Australia, we intend to capitalise on our strong institutional client support and investment ratings to build our distribution to intermediaries."
