Former StatePlus Head of Research joins Fidelity

Executive Move


Fidelity International has announced the appointment of Richard Dinham as head of client solutions & retirement, effective 12 March 2018.

In this role, Dinham's focus will be on working with Fidelity’s investment teams to develop a range of solutions for Australian wholesale and institutional clients. He will report to Alva Devoy, managing director - Australia.

He joins from Macquarie Bank where he held a six month contract as head of research for its wealth management division. Previously, he held roles at StatePlus - as chief investment officer, for two and a half years, and most recently as head of research, a role he left in July 2017.

Prior to this, Dinham was a senior investment consultant at Russell Investments, the head of institutional business at Investment Solutions, a product manager and investment consultant at J.P. Morgan and an investment consultant at Mercer.

Commenting on his appointment, Devoy said: “Fidelity International globally offers world class investment solutions spanning equities, fixed income, real estate and multi asset. Combining this global expertise with Richard’s local knowledge and experience allows us the opportunity to better meet the needs of our clients both now and into the future.”

Speaking to Industry Moves, Dinham said: "I am excited to join Fidelity which has great depth and breadth in its investment capabilities, both locally and around the world. The retirement landscape in Australia is shifting as more people reach retirement age and so my new role will be to help develop solutions which address the changing needs of our clients throughout their lives. I look forward to helping to bring the best of Fidelity’s capabilities to serve Australian clients.”
