By Industry Funds Management - 6 December 2011


Industry Funds Management (IFM) is today pleased to announce the establishment of a Small Caps capability, with the recruitment of three new specialists.

Neil Carter will become the Executive Director of IFM’s Small Caps team and will be joined by Jim Copland and Matt Griffin, to round out the unit.

All three have come from Macquarie Bank and will be based in Sydney, where they will add to the strong momentum of IFM.

IFM CEO Brett Himbury said today that he was delighted with the appointments.

“Many of our large institutional clients struggle to access this calibre of managers due to capacity constraints.”

“We are delighted to be able to offer the unparalleled expertise Neil Carter, Jim Coplan and Matt Griffin represent to our stakeholders.”

“Our unique ownership structure and culture, backed by our strong financial position have attracted this team. All three have proven themselves as excellent investors and have extensive and diverse backgrounds which make them a good fit for IFM.”

“We want to send a very clear message to our investors and indeed our competitors, that we are determined to continue to set world class standards that genuinely put investors first.

“These executive appointments announced today can very much be seen in that context.”
