Mark Williams has joined the investment team of ethical superannuation provider Australian Ethical as an equities analyst.
Mr Williams brings 10 years’ experience in financial markets to Australian Ethical, having worked as an analyst most recently with Morgans and ABN AMRO/RBS/CIMB prior.
His appointment comes at a time of strong growth for Australian Ethical, which has reported strong half-yearly results of a 35 per cent growth in funds under management, a 55 per cent growth in profit, a doubling of its share price in the past two years and consistent top quartile investment performance of funds.
Australian Ethical chief investment officer David Macri said: “Much of Australian Ethical’s continued growth in inflows is a result of strong investment performance, which is in turn driven by our unique investment process and high quality investment team.
“Mark’s extensive knowledge and experience will further strengthen our expertise and ensure we continue to identify the best investments within our ethically-screened universe.”
Mr Williams said: “I am excited to work with a company that both aligns with my personal values and delivers strong returns for investors. Australian Ethical is the leader in the Australian ethical investing sector and I look forward to using my skills to help it to continue to deliver excellent results for its investors and shareholders.”
