Watch part two of an Investment Magazine roundtable held on the sidelines of the Markets Summit on 14 February 2011.

Editor Simon Mumme speaks with asset class specialists from funds management companies in Australia and Asia:

– Victor Rodriguez, head of Australian fixed income, Aberdeen Asset Management

– Eng Teck Tan, investment manager, Treasury Asia Asset Management

– Ian Harding, director of Wavestone Capital Management

– Andrew Parsons, senior portfolio manager, Resolution Capital

Simon Mumme became a fnancial journalist through a stroke of luck. Upon graduating with a Master of Journalism from The University of Queensland in 2006, he set out to fnd a news organisation that would employ him as an overseas correspondent or business reporter. Or both, ideally. Conexus Financial hired the bright-eyed cadet, and in the ensuing years he wrote for all of its titles until being appointed editor of Investment Magazine in June 2010. Under his guidance, the magazine continues to dominate the Australian institutional investment media through its authoritative, insightful and engaging feature stories and analysis. Outside of work, Simon trains keenly in Muay Thai kickboxing, revels in the surf breaks fringing the Sydney coastline and reads as much high-quality journalism and non-fiction writing as he can. Committed to his role as a niche business reporter, Simon is aware that an overseas posting as a correspondent still eludes him. He hopes Conexus can help him with that career goal too.
