Frontier boosts capital markets strength

August 09, 2018

We are pleased to announce the appointment of Philip Naylor who will join our Capital Markets and Asset Allocation Team on 8 October, 2018.

Philip has well over a decade of senior experience, much of that with the Reserve Bank of Australia (RBA), both in Sydney and New York, including working on the fixed income and foreign exchange trading desk, and as an RBA representative at the G20 Investment and Infrastructure Working Group. His time at the RBA included a consultancy at the World Bank in Washington DC in 2015.

Currently Philip is the Economic Advisor to the Deputy Chief Minister and Treasurer of the Northern Territory, where he provides advice over the Territory’s $6.5 billion annual budget, intergovernmental issues and bodies, and shareholdings over publically owned utility companies. He has also spent time with both Macquarie Bank and Bell Commodities.

Frontier CEO, Andrew Polson, is looking forward to the contribution Philip will make to Frontier’s capability and its clients. “Capital Markets research and asset allocation advice has long been a hallmark of Frontier. We have been ranked first among asset consulting firms in Australia for three consecutive years in the areas of both strategic and dynamic asset allocation advice. We believe asset allocation is the largest contributor to investment performance and are determined to continue to invest in developing our strength in this area,” said Polson.

“Philip has an impressive professional and academic pedigree and a diverse background of prior roles. He brings an excellent set of skills to the table, including a valuable mix of local and international economic and markets experience along with a strong ability to communicate with clients and his colleagues. Philip will add both breadth and depth to our team, under the leadership of Chris Trevillyan,” said Polson.

Philip holds a Bachelor of Business, with Honours, in Economics and Finance, from RMIT, along with a Master of Public Administration in Economic Policy Management, from Columbia University in New York, where he was Class Valedictorian. He is also a CFA Charterholder.
