Frontier grows its team
Frontier has announced the appointment of James Gunn, who will be joining the firm's equities research team as a senior consultant on 7 January 2019.
Gunn has more than 15 years' experience within equities focused fund manager research roles, including direct investment experience as a buy-side equity analyst. Most recently, he worked as a senior investment analyst with Prime Value and, prior to that, spent a decade across Standard and Poors, Navigator and Lincoln Indicators.
Three new investment staff will also join Frontier in the new year as associates with the firm. They are:
• Nadine Hassouna, who has relocated from Dubai, having previously worked as a buy-side equity analyst with asset manager, Emirates NBD;
• Paul Chua, who joins from NAB’s performance and risk analytics team where he has worked with a number of industry funds; and
• James Kosmatos, who was most recently a senior consultant in the PwC Wealth team with a range of responsibilities across research, analytics, reporting and client service.
Frontier is also recruiting for a number of key senior roles, including a director of sector research who will work closely with each of the firm's sector research heads and support Kim Bowater, director of consulting and Chris Trevillyan, director of investment strategy in shaping the advice provided to clients, Frontier said.
Having recently split its former debt and alternatives research team into two groups, namely debt and currency, headed by principal consultant Andrew Kemp, and derivatives and alternatives, headed by principal consultant Michael Sommers, Frontier will soon be looking to add further capability in this space.
Additionally, Frontier said it will be hiring more senior people to join its team in the investment strategy, equities, and quantitative solutions areas.
