Zaf Kardaras has joined Northern Trust as tax manager for Australia and New Zealand, supporting financial and tax reporting for clients in the funds management and superannuation industries.



Kardaras is the lead tax specialist in a fund administration team with 60 professionals dedicated to Australian clients, including fund accounting, unit pricing, financial reporting and tax.

As a senior member of the client delivery team, Kardaras will also represent Northern Trust in industry tax forums.

"Northern Trust continues to make significant investment to support its goal of offering the premier tax solution for Australian institutions, and Zaf’s hiring complements the local expertise we have built in the region,” says Rohan Singh, managing director for Northern Trust Australia. “Zaf will provide critical leadership as our experienced team of fund accountants and tax specialists help institutional clients meet the challenges of Australia’s evolving tax regime.”

Based in Melbourne, Kardaras comes to Northern Trust as a senior tax professional with 17 years of tax experience in the financial services industry, most recently as a tax director at PricewaterhouseCoopers. Prior to that he was head of taxation at IOOF Holdings and previously held tax manager roles at ANZ and KPMG.

"I am excited to join Northern Trust, which has a highly regarded brand and a business model that combines exceptionally strong local capabilities with a single global technology platform,” says Kardaras. “The ability to leverage a global model using a team of local experts based in Melbourne offers an outstanding tax product for clients. I especially look forward to partnering with our clients, advisers and the global Northern Trust network to continually enhance the taxation reporting and value-added services that we offer in support of ongoing Australian and international taxation developments.”
