Richard Dinham was named chief investment officer of State Super Financial Services, which advises on A$8.3 billion (US$7.4 billion), predominantly on behalf of retired New South Wales public servants.
Mr. Dinham, who is a senior asset consultant with Russell Investments, will start at SSFS on June 1. He replaces Oscar Fabian, who resigned to become CIO of VicSuper in April.
Mr. Dinham will be responsible for managing SSFS’ range of multimanager funds; he will report to SSFS Managing Director Peter McKillop.
Russell said it was recruiting for five new roles in its Australian consulting practice, including three consultants, one of whom will replace Mr. Dinham.
