Equity Trustees sharpens focus to grow corporate trustee business in Australia and overseas


Australia’s leading trustee company, Equity Trustees, has sharpened its focus on growing the corporate trustee/responsible entity business, realigning two of its key leaders with the target markets of Australia and Europe.

Industry veteran Russell Beasley, who joined Equity Trustees in 2005 and took over leadership of the Australian Fund Services business in May 2019, has been promoted to Executive General Manager, Corporate Trustee Services – Australia.

Harvey Kalman, who established the Corporate Trustee Services business in Australia 20 years ago, and led the expansion of the business overseas, has been appointed Managing Director (UK and Europe) and Global Head of Business Development, Fund Services.

“Russell has more than four decades of experience in the Australian market, strong client relationships and significant expertise across the complex range of operational responsibilities required for an outstanding responsible entity business,” said Mick O’Brien, Managing Director, Equity Trustees.

“With Harvey’s commitment to attracting leading fund managers to Equity Trustees, we aim to make the most of the significant opportunity to grow our European business.

“We are confident this alignment of energy and expertise will ensure we make the most of the many opportunities available to us here and overseas,” Mr O’Brien concluded.
