Crescent Wealth appoints Chief Investment Officer

Executive Move


Crescent Wealth, an Islamic and socially responsible super fund based in Australia, has appointed Jason Hazell as its chief investment officer.

Hazell previously served on the fund's investment committee and, according to Crescent Wealth managing director Talal Yassine, knows well the fund's "distinctive investment approach" and is a "strong supporter of [its] investment ethos."

Hazell has more than 20 years’ experience in superannuation, investment management, mergers and acquisitions, and private equity. He joins Crescent Wealth from Nightingale Partners, a Sydney-based venture capital firm that invests in early and growth stage companies.

Previously, he spent more than eight years with NAB Asset Management where he was head of investment specialists and previously head of strategy and M&A. He also had a 10-year stint with MLC Investment Management, managing Australian and global real estate portfolios.

Hazell replaces Ronan Walsh, who has moved back to Ireland after serving in the role for just over two years.
