General counsel, Cameron Price, will also take on additional responsibilities as chief risk officer.
Commenting on the changes, CEO, David Neal, said: “To sustain our success as our portfolio grows we are refining our structure. This will strengthen our collaborative approach and help us to be more nimble and streamlined in the hunt for investment opportunities, the management of the investment portfolio and the creation and use of technology and risk insights."
He added: “Implementing these changes will help us stay sharply focused on our task of investing for the benefit of future generations of Australians."
