bfinance strengthens public markets team with hire of Joey Alcock

RELATED TOPICS​

bfinance, the independently owned investment consultancy, has appointed Joey Alcock as a senior associate in its public markets team, specialising in equities.

Alcock brings 20 years’ industry experience to bfinance and joins from Australian investment consultancy Frontier, where he has worked as a consultant for the last 11 years. At Frontier Alcock focused heavily on manager research as well as broader investment advisory services to institutional clients. He brings significant expertise of listed international equities and private equity, complemented by research into emerging and niche asset classes.
 
Prior to Frontier, Alcock worked at TWUSUPER, Australia’s leading superfund for the transport and logistics industry, following roles at GE Commercial Finance and InterSec Research. He began his career as a commercial sales manager at Westpac Banking Corporation. Alcock holds a Master of Applied Finance and a Bachelor of Commerce from the University of Melbourne.
 
In his role at bfinance, Alcock will be responsible for investment advisory services in equities across all geographies, covering active management, traditional passive and smart beta allocations, as well as helping refine the due diligence process that structures the manager search process.

bfinance’s range of services provided includes portfolio strategy and design, portfolio risk reviews and solutions, investment manager search and selection and due diligence. Clients typically retain bfinance as an ongoing and active advisor to provide fully customised investment programme design and management or to deliver ongoing active advisory and monitoring solutions, while the consultancy also provides services on a modular basis.
 
Mathias Neidert, managing director, head of public markets investment advisory at bfinance, says:
‘It’s a pleasure to have Joey join the public markets team. Alongside his extensive consulting experience, he has worked directly for major asset owners and brings in-depth knowledge of the Australian market where bfinance recently launched a new office. While equities are a staple of our clients’ portfolios, identifying managers that fit investors’ specific needs and securing attractive fees remains challenging. Handling allocations to equities still requires a rigorous and transparent methodology and excellent knowledge of these markets. We look forward to working with Joey to respond to rising demand from our clients.
 
Alcock says: ‘It’s great to be a part of the growing team at bfinance. The public markets team has recently conducted some very high profile allocations at the cutting edge of the industry, from multi-billion European equity allocations to mandates involving asset pooling for the LGPS. I look forward to contributing to these successes across global markets, as the company continues expanding into new geographies following the launch of the Sydney office.’
