Hostplus has appointed a head of investment strategy.
Reporting to chief investment officer Sam Sicilia, Greg Clerk joins Hostplus from JANA, where he was a senior consultant (and worked extensively with Hostplus). During his time there, Clerk held roles including head of quantitative analytics, information technology and custody.
Prior to JANA, Clerk was an analyst at the Department of Treasury and Finance in Victoria.
"Greg Clerk brings a wealth of experience to Hostplus as he has been working with our Fund for over 13 years in his role as a senior consultant at JANA. There is no doubt that Greg will bring a wealth of knowledge to our investments team, and we are excited to have him join Hostplus," said Hostplus chief executive David Elia.
"We have been with JANA since 2001 and their ongoing role with Hostplus will be critical. JANA will continue to give us quality advice that has consistently influenced our top quartile performance over all investment periods.
"We are delighted to welcome Greg on board and continue receiving quality advice from our valued partner JANA. Ultimately, we believe this strategy will continue to benefit our members and enable their super to contribute to a quality retirement."
