GAM is strengthening its sales team with new hires for its wholesale business in Australia
GAM Investments today announced the appointment of Daniel Sharp as Manager – Wholesale, HNW and Family Office. Daniel is based in Sydney and reports to Alex Zaika, Head of Australia.
In this role, Daniel will be responsible for serving wholesale accounts in Australia. His appointment will expand GAM’s local presence and deepen GAM’s relationships with advisors, wealth managers and family offices in Australia and New Zealand.
Daniel’s appointment coincides with GAM’s plans to soon launch a strategy that offers clients access to leading late-stage private companies in the final stages of private funding. This differentiated strategy will complement GAM’s existing local offerings in alternative risk premia, systematic core macro and insurance-linked securities strategies.
Daniel joins GAM from Apostle Funds Management where he was Sales Director responsible for establishing and leading retail and wholesale distribution. Before that he was Business Development Manager at Microequities Asset Management. He has also worked at Thomson Reuters, Macquarie Securities Group and American Express, among others. Daniel holds a bachelor’s degree in finance from Charles Sturt University and is a CFA charterholder.
Alex Zaika, Head of Australia at GAM, said: “We are delighted to welcome Daniel who will continue to support GAM’s growth in the wholesale market in Australia and New Zealand. Advisors are increasingly employing sophisticated investment strategies and Daniel’s strong technical background will be extremely valuable as we seek to provide solutions to meet their needs.”
