Who's Moving Where In Wealth Management? - Fidante

The latest moves in and around the Asia-Pacific wealth management industry.

Fidante Partners, the Australia-listed asset manager, has appointed David Cubbin as head of distribution, based in its London office.

Cubbin joins from Fidante’s Australian head office, where he spent four and a half years leading the institutional distribution efforts for three of its boutiques, including the fixed income manager, Ardea Investment Management. As part of his role, Cubbin also took investment managers, WaveStone Capital and Lennox Capital Partners, to full investment capacity.

Prior to Fidante, Cubbin lived in South Sudan for three years where he established several businesses, including an internet service provider, which he grew to be the second largest in bandwidth in the country. Before that, he was business development manager at Private Capital Management, having initially started his career as a business analyst at Macquarie Capital in London, working in mergers and acquisitions in the technology, media and telecoms team.

Cubbin will report to Sydney-based head of global distribution, and former head of Australian institutional business, Michael Clarke.

Fidante has offices in Sydney, London and Stockholm, and is fully-owned by Challenger Limited, an ASX-listed investment management firm and regulated life insurer with A$86 billion in assets under management.
