Happily, we have found the perfect fit in Mark, who has a detailed understanding of alternative beta strategies and their benefits. In addition, Mark has a great deal of experience with institutional investors as well as financial advisers in the Australian and the wider Asia-Pacific markets, and has a track-record of successfully growing a business.”
