Pinnacle adds to EMEA sales team

RELATED TOPICS​

Pinnacle Investment Management, a Sydney-headquartered multi-affiliate investment manager, has expanded its EMEA sales team with the addition of James Longman as associate director, covering institutional and wholesale investors across the UK, Europe, Middle East and Africa.

Longman joins from Schroders, where he spent six years in a variety of roles, most recently in the UK intermediary team – specialising in international private banks, family offices and wealth managers. He will play a key part in the continued growth of Pinnacle’s local presence, by strengthening existing client relationships and developing new alliances with financial institutions in the UK. Based in London, Longman will report to Ben Cossey, managing director, EMEA distribution at Pinnacle.

The appointment follows Pinnacle’s continued investment into international distribution. The firm recently reported FUM of A$89.4bn across its 16 affiliates, as of 30 June 2021, up 52 per cent year-on-year.

Pinnacle’s affiliates include UK-based Aikya Investment Management, a sustainable emerging markets manager founded in 2020 by a team from Stewart Investors; and Antipodes Partners, a pragmatic value manager founded by Jacob Mitchell, which has investment personnel in London and Sydney. Other affiliates include high-conviction global growth equities manager Hyperion Asset Management, and global real estate securities manager Resolution Capital.

Andrew Chambers, executive director, head of institutional and international, at Pinnacle, says: “We are delighted to have someone of James’ calibre joining our fast-growing business. James’ professional drive, entrepreneurial mindset, and deep interest in the evolving needs of asset owners around the world is aligned very strongly with Pinnacle’s distinctive culture and growth ambitions.”

Cossey says: “James was the standout candidate during the recruitment process, and I am looking forward to working with him. James is the fourth new hire we have made in the London office this year; testament to the growing interest in our boutique investment affiliates from EMEA investors.”

Longman says: “This is a very exciting time to be joining a firm with a high growth trajectory and an exceptional range of investment affiliates, both in their investment quality and asset class diversity. I look forward to building on this growth with the team and supporting our clients in achieving their investment goals.”
