Artio Global Opens Australian Office Under Ian Webber

Jul 6 2011 | 9:16am ET

New York-based Artio Global Investors, an investment management firm with $49.2 billion AUM, has set up shop down under.

Richard Pell, CIO and CEO of Artio Global, said “the sophistication of the Australian institutional marketplace means there is much opportunity for Artio Global’s unconventional approach, making this a natural move for the firm.” The Sydney office will be the firm’s third non-US office, after Toronto and London.

Artio Global’s initial focus in the region will be on its global equity strategy, which the firm has managed since 1995. On the fixed income side, the firm will also provide its global high yield offering, which it has been running since 2003.

The Sydney office will be managed by Australian Ian Webber, who joined Artio Global in June of 2011. Webber has extensive experience providing investment solutions to institutions, most recently as co-head of Australia/head of sales and marketing for AXA Rosenberg Investment Management. He also served as director, institutional business for Salomon Smith Barney/Citigroup Asset Management.

Artio Global Investors is the indirect holding company of New York-based Artio Global Management. Artio Global offers a number of strategies through a variety of investment vehicles, including separate accounts, commingled funds and registered mutual funds.
