Tyndall Investments, the $22.8 billion Australian fund manager owned by Nikko Asset Management Co., is seeking to hire a head of institutional sales after adding seven staff since July.

“We’re improving our engagement model,” says Craig Hobart, managing director, Tyndall Investments.

Tyndall had 57 staff at the end of July. It now has 64 after announcing last week it was hiring Robert Woodford as fixed income investment specialist and institutional account manager.

Tyndall has hired investment writers Janelle McKimm and Jessica Burnstone for its Australian stocks and bonds team.

Sebastian Mullins has been hired to manage Tyndall’s multi-manager global equities strategy and its diversified funds.

“We want growth in Australia,” says Hobart.
