Lonsec expands leadership to meet growing demand
Research house Lonsec has reshuffled its research team as it aims to meet a growing demand for investment research and managed account solutions.
Lorraine Robinson has been appointed the new executive director of Lonsec Research. She will take the reins in early December after eight years at Evans and Partners, most recently as chief operating officer for Evans Dixon Corporate and Institutional, according to a statement.
Lonsec said Ms Robinson brings an intimate understanding of what users need to support their investment decisions and how best to deliver research in a way that meets the evolving needs of wealth creators.
Libby Newman will take on the role of director of managed fund research, while Deanne Baker will move from the research team to take on the position of portfolio manager of diversified multi-asset portfolios within Lonsec’s investment solutions division.
Peter Green will continue in his role as head of listed research, managing the significant growth in the number of new ETFs, LICs and other listed products coming to the market.
Rui Fernandes continues as a senior member of the managed funds research team, with a focus on quality assurance and facilitating the expansion of the number of products that are rated.
“The speed of growth at Lonsec continues to necessitate the addition of quality people to our team,” said Lonsec chief executive Charlie Haynes.
