A week after being acquired by Nikko Asset Management, Tyndall Investments has initiated a program to further strengthen its business with the promotion of Mr Andrew Julius to head of retail. This follows the earlier confirmation of Mr Craig Hobart as managing director of Tyndall.
Mr Julius joined Tyndall Investments in 2007 as national key account manager and has been acting national sales manager for retail since February this year. As head of retail, Mr Julius will be responsible for managing key relationships at dealer group and practice levels.
Prior to joining Tyndall, he was with ING as NSW business development manager and has also worked with Aviva in a senior sales role and as a practice development manager for a dealer group. He has over 13 years’ experience in the financial services industry and holds a bachelor of business, a graduate diploma in financial planning, and is currently completing a masters of applied finance.
Mr Hobart said that the appointment is the first step of Tyndall’s strategy to build on the momentum created by its acquisition.
“Tyndall Investments is now in an excellent position to take advantage of the demand in the market for high-quality, consistently-performing equities and fixed income products, with business development opportunities in Australia and, potentially, overseas.
“We are particularly fortunate to have someone of Andrew’s calibre and experience to head up the retail business. He knows our business inside out, and has an excellent understanding of the needs of financial planners and intermediaries,” Mr Hobart said
Since its acquisition by Nikko AM, ratings of Tyndall’s funds by research houses Lonsec and Standard & Poor’s have been reaffirmed. Tyndall Investments recently won the Australian Fixed Interest category in the 2010 S&P Fund Awards.
Tyndall Investment Management offers Australian equities funds; Australian and global fixed income funds; and global premia funds, to retail and institutional investors in Australia. Tyndall has asset managers based in Sydney, Brisbane and Auckland, and has almost $22 billion in funds under management (as at 30 September 2010).
