Aviate Global returns to Hong Kong and Australia

RELATED TOPICS​

Aviate Global, the institutional equity brokerage, has returned to Asia with offices in Hong Kong and Sydney now serving the region.

Douglas Morton, James Santo, Lachlin Miller and Gerard Walsh join the brokerage firm, following the recent hires of Asia managing partners Robert Buckley (Hong Kong) and Robert Arnott (Sydney).
 
“Asia is not new to many followers of Aviate Global,” says Guy Gibson, co-founding partner of Aviate Global. “In June 2008, we joint-ventured with Central Joint Enterprises to build an Asia business, trading under Aviate Global branding. Initially, this operated from a London base, followed quickly by the establishment of very successful offices in Hong Kong, Singapore and Melbourne. In July 2010, Religare purchased Central Joint Enterprises, the company operating the ‘Aviate Global (Asia)’ brand and Aviate Global concentrated on its European and US operations.
 
“We’ve been waiting for the right time to re-build in Asia and achieve our goal of operating as a truly global boutique broker.  For that reason, Asia managing partners Robert Arnott and Robert Buckley were key hires for Aviate Global. They bring over 30 years of experience in equity markets, from senior management roles in sales / sales trading at Goldman Sachs, ABN Amro and Mirabaud, and have now been joined by Douglas Morton, James Santo, Lachlin Miller and Gerard Walsh – giving our clients in Asia top quality trade ideas coupled with speed of execution and non-conflicted independence.
 
“18 months ago, we had a small presence in Asia through our London office.  We now have fast-growing and successful offices in Hong Kong and Sydney to add to our thriving London and New York operations. We employ more than 50 staff globally and plan to double this over the next five years, with much of this growth in Hong Kong and Sydney.”
 
Morton has joined from Bennelong Asset Management as head of Aviate’s Asia research team; Santo joins as an event-driven sales trader and was previously head of hedge fund sales at Merrill Lynch; Miller joins as an equity sales trader from CF Global; while Walsh joins from Schroders as chief business officer, with his work in Asia forming part of a wider, global role.
