Wingate strengthens team

Global equities manager, Wingate Asset Management, is strengthening its team with the addition of two distribution professionals.

Jeannie Bredberg joins as the national head of business development and Duncan Knight joins as the national head of key accounts.

Wingate Asset Management chief executive Jamie Mead said: "These newly created roles are reflective of the increasing demand for the Wingate Global Equity Fund and our continued commitment to provide first class relationship management and support to our valued investment partners."

"Duncan and Jeannie are both recognised as industry experts in their respective specialities and bring complementary multi-decade experience to the Wingate Asset Management team," Mead said.

Jeannie Bredberg most recently held the role of new business manager at BT Financial. Her extensive career has involved senior business development roles at institutions that include Russell Investments and Macquarie Bank.

Duncan Knight previously held the senior position of head of distribution, investment specialist with Antares Equities. The earlier part of his career was spent in senior research and consulting positions with Lonsec, Willis Towers Watson and Mercer.

Earlier this year, private health insurer Australian Unity ceased to be a direct shareholder in Wingate Asset Management. The firm is now jointly owned by staff and the Wingate Group, with Australian Unity maintaining an indirect interest via shares in the parent company.

The firm was added to the Macquarie Wrap in August last year, giving investors exposure to global markets while controlling risk.

Both positions will be based in Melbourne and report directly to Mead.
