Perpetual Investments expands its global equities offering with two new hires


Perpetual Investments has announced the appointment of two global equities analysts to further bolster its team as it grows its global equities strategy.

Experienced global value investors Tim Cheung and Abbey Cook will be joining the team during the next six weeks to expand Perpetual’s stock analysis across global companies.

Head of Equities Perpetual Investments, Paul Skamvougeras, said: “We have been firm in our commitment to growing our global equities offering, and strengthening the team through the appointment of talented individuals such as Tim and Abbey is an important part of that growth strategy.

“We have ambitious growth targets based on our proven capability and we are strong believers that the weight of money in the Australian superannuation system means allocation to global will continue to increase. To meet these targets we need to have the right people in the team to deliver on our goals, and with Global Equities Portfolio Manager Garry Laurence leading a strong team, we believe we are well-placed to make that happen.”

Mr Cheung and Ms Cook are experienced global value investors and bring the total number of people within our growing global equities team to seven.

Mr Cheung joins from Morphic Asset Management where he was Principal and Head of Research. Tim has 11 years’ of equities experience in Australia, with a short stint in the US. He is a Cantonese speaker and has deep experience covering the Asian region and a variety of other sectors. He begins his new role with Perpetual on 2 November.

Ms Cook joins the following month on 7 December. She has 10 years’ experience in global equities in Australia and the US and has been based in the US for the past two years at Balmoral Consulting. Ms Cook has worked closely with Perpetual for more than a year facilitating introductions and building relationships with US companies.

Ms Cook has now left Balmoral Consulting and joins Perpetual’s team in Sydney to enhance its focus on global consumer companies.

Mr Cheung and Ms Cook’s appointments bring the total number of people within Perpetual Investments’ equities team to 21. The global equities team shares the same proven investment philosophy and process followed by the Australian equities team. Collectively the teams visit more than 1,000 global companies each year to gain valuable insights.
