Posted by fidest press agency su sabato, 4 agosto 2018

Research Affiliates, LLC, announces today that Mike Aked, CFA, Partner and Director of Research for Australia, has relocated to Melbourne, where he will support the firm’s network of Australian partners and identify new growth opportunities. He will also be involved with strategic initiatives and research around asset allocation for the firm as well as other research initiatives in support of the Australian market.
Founded in 2002 by Rob Arnott and based in Newport Beach, California, Research Affiliates is a global leader in asset allocation, smart beta, and active equity strategies. Through various Australian distribution partners and direct clients, Research Affiliates’ strategies such as the RAFI™ Fundamental Index™ have been available in Australia for 10 years. Of the A$265 billion* in assets managed globally using RA investment strategies, over A$20 billion is in Australia, making it a significant and important region for the firm.
With Mr. Aked based locally, Research Affiliates hopes to create greater impact via our research insights and tools for Australian investors. This move will also facilitate more frequent in-person dialogue among Research Affiliates and asset owners, local consultants, and distribution partners. “Mike has been an invaluable contributor to Research Affiliates’ growth and success,” explains Katy Sherrerd, President and CEO of Research Affiliates. “He brings with him a deep understanding of markets—particularly on the implementation side—as well as our investment beliefs, research processes, core values, and company culture. Further, his experience working at both superannuation funds and global asset managers makes Mike an excellent representative of Research Affiliates as we strive to deepen our involvement with the Australian investment community.” “Surveying the Australian investment landscape, it is truly a very exciting time to be in my home country. Opportunities to make a meaningful impact abound. I look forward to helping increase our presence and to making sure our research and insights are relevant and impactful to Australian investors,” said Mr. Aked. Mike Aked received a BA with honors in applied mathematics from the University of Sydney, an MS in statistics from the University of Virginia, and an MS in financial mathematics from the University of Chicago. Previously, Mike held positions at Sunsuper, University of Virginia Investment Management Company, and UBS Global Asset Management across four continents. He holds the Chartered Financial Analyst® designation and is a member of both the CFA Society Melbourne and Q-Group Australia.
