Sydney, 16 February, 2017

Australian independent investment advisory firm Providence has appointed Will Porter to the newly created role of Global Research Manager based in London, in order to broaden research insight. 

Having access to global fund managers in London, Will Porter will be delivering insights on global themes in asset allocation and investment markets to Providence’s Australian-based investment committee and executive team, for the benefit of Providence’s clients.

We recognise that changes occurring at a global level may significantly affect the investment decisions we make locally. Having our dedicated resource in London, a world financial capital, will continue to enhance our global perspective and maintain our alignment with global investment themes” he said. “At Providence we pride ourselves on providing expert and truly independent investment management and advice to our clients. We believe that Will’s presence in London will enhance our ability to safely navigate these uncertain times on behalf of our clients, in a global context.”
