Sydney asset manager hires director

A $5.3 billion global manager which acts as the responsible entity for several ASX-listed funds is seeing a change in its board positions.

Walsh & Company Investments director Tristan O'Connell is stepping down to focus on activities in the Evans Dixon Group.

His board seat will be taken by Michael Adams who brings law expertise to the board. Adams is a director with Sydney-based financial services law firm Barnett Law.

He has worked for high-net-worth clients, listed and unlisted corporate entities and banks and financial institutions.

"His core practice areas involve the provision of advice and transactional expertise in relation to new and existing retail financial products and the regulatory framework within which they operate, as well as debt and equity financing, intellectual property, and film and television media law among others," an ASX statement said.

Adams has worked in Australia, New Zealand and UK with corporate, commercial and private clients.

The board change affects several ASX-listed funds, including: US Masters Residential Property Fund (REIT); Evans & Partners Australian Flagship Fund; Evans & Partners Asia Fund; Evans & Partners Global Flagship Fund; Evans & Partners Global Disruption Fund; and Cordish Dixon Private Equity Funds I and III.

Walsh and Company was co-founded in 2007 by Max Walsh.

It runs funds in fixed income, equities, private equity, property and sustainable investing.
