Alexandra’s appointment coincides with GAM’s plans to launch a dedicated sports strategy which will provide capital solutions to some of the most valuable sports leagues and franchises around the world.  This differentiated investment strategy will complement GAM’s existing local offerings in late-stage private companies, systematic macro and insurance-linked securities.

She began her career at the Australian fund manager Maple-Brown Abbott Ltd. where she was jointly responsible for marketing, business development and customer service in distribution. Alexandra holds a Bachelor of Commerce from Macquarie University in Sydney.

Alex Zaika, Head of Australia at GAM, said: “We are delighted to welcome Alexandra, who will further support GAM’s growth across both institutional and wealth advisory markets in Australia.
