MTAA Super is looking to add investment personnel to its internal team to work with its consultant and investment committee.

Institutional investment relationship manager, Phil Brown, said the appointments were to keep up with the investment activity in the fund’s portfolio. Brown said the fund was advertising two positions but who was appointed would depend on the applications received. In the first instance the fund is looking for an investment manager, public markets and an investment manager, private markets to join the investment team of two. The role(s) would include a range of activities and work closely with the fund’s consultant. The fund has received consistent inflows, with June flows above normal activity, and now has funds under management of $5.7 billion. The funds two-portfolio strategy divides investments into two areas, the market-linked portfolio and the target return portfolio. Brown said while the fund had received significant inflows, the investment team was still finding suitable investments in its unlisted portfolio. “;We can still access good deal flow and have some key strategic relationships which help that,”; he said.
