The head of investments at Non-Government Schools Super is understood to have left the fund, citing personal reasons.
Bill Dwyer, who joined NGS Super last August after a stint running Australian equities manager research for Mercer Investment Consulting, is said to have returned to Perth citing family reasons.
It could not be confirmed at presstime whether his absence from the Sydney-based fund, understood to be roughly three weeks old, will be permanent. His email autoreply at the fund simply says he is “currently unavailable due to personal reasons”.
The CEO of NGS Super, Anthony Rodwell-Ball, was unavailable for comment – he was heading overseas yesterday to fulfil a FEAL scholarship to Wharton Business School that he won last year. Investment committee member Tim Hughes was also unavailable to comment.
Dwyer brought Mercer colleague Megan Pham to NGS Super in March, as an investment analyst.
