Charles Woodhouse will join the Abu Dhabi Pension Fund, Abu Dhabi, as CIO in October, a spokesperson confirmed.
Woodhouse resigned from the Australian Retirement Trust, Brisbane, this month.
Woodhouse starts in his role on Oct. 16, the Abu Dhabi-based fund said in a statement. "He joins ADPF at a time when ADPF has seen a substantial increase in its assets under management and is increasing its investments in private markets," the statement said.
The spokesperson did not immediately respond to queries about the size of the fund's assets and its allocation to private investments. The Sovereign Wealth Fund Institute estimates ADPF to have around $3 billion in assets.
An ART spokesperson confirmed Woodhouse's resignation last week. He was deputy CIO at ART, and was previously CIO at QSuper, which merged with Sunsuper to form ART last year.
Before that, he was the head of funds management at QSuper for a decade, where he was responsible for investments across infrastructure, real estate and private equity, and managed the fund's mandates with external managers.
