It’s taken eighteen months, but the Bennelong Australian Equity Partners (BAEP) boutique has added a sixth former ING Investment Managment staffer to its ranks.

The boutique, which is backed the Bennelong Group, yesterday announced the appointment of Kieran Sisson as a senior analyst, commencing with the group in mid-February.

At ING Investment Management, Sisson had been responsible for stock coverage across healthcare, non-bank financials, and insurance sectors. He had previously held responsibility for small resources, building materials, telecommunications, infrastructure and utilities, but has also covered a range of other sectors over his career, which has included positions with Allianz Asset Management, State Street Global Advisors and Mercury Asset Management.

Sisson worked with BAEP CEO Paul Cuddy and CIO Mark East for over five years during their tenure at ING IM.

BAEP was established in July 2008 as a joint venture between Bennelong Funds Management, Cuddy and East. BFM has attracted retail and institutional inflows and currently has more than $1.7 billion in funds under management, although interestingly none of that has come from transitions out of ING IM.
