The Fund Executive Association Limited (FEAL) has announced the winner of its inaugural Wharton School of Business scholarship.
Non Government Schools Superannuation Fund chief executive officer, Anthony Rodwell-Ball, will attend the week-long Investment Strategies and Portfolio Management program at the Wharton School of Business in
Appointed to the role of CEO in only June this year, Rodwell-Ball had a keen desire to “up skill his knowledge of investments,” and had shown particular effort in his application to further studies, the CEO of FEAL, Michael Baldwin, said. It was felt that from the large number applicants, Rodwell-Ball stood the most to gain from the Wharton Scholarship.
Before joining NGS Super, Rodwell-Ball was the chief finance officer, and for a period the acting CEO, at Emergency Services and State Super. Prior to that he was the general manager, finance and risk, at Australian Super.
Rodwell-Ball said the scholarship was an unexpected surprise. “This opportunity will give me an insight to current academic thinking as well as the chance to network with industry participants who face the same issues as Australian investors,” he said. “I’ll use the time at Wharton to develop deeper knowledge and gain better tools to make better decisions for the organisation and ultimately our members.”
