Our New Head of Research

June 20, 2019

After an extensive executive search, Frontier Advisors is delighted to announce the appointment of Paul Newfield into the role of Director of Sector Research.

Paul will join Frontier from Willis Towers Watson where he has held the role of Senior Consultant for over eight years. Prior to that posting, Paul spent twelve years at Mercer including a stint in their New Zealand Office, where he led Mercer’s retirement business and Chaired the Board of their trustee company. He is a qualified Actuary.

Frontier Advisors CEO, Andrew Polson, believes this latest, and most senior appointment in a series of new additions to the firm, will be welcomed by our clients. “Paul is a well-known and highly regarded consultant in the industry and someone known to be extremely values driven, which makes him a great fit for our organisation”, said Polson.

“This is a very important role with a primary focus on driving innovation and client alignment in our research program. Additionally, Paul will work closely with our global investment research alliance partners, and also provide input to our broader strategy and client relationships through his involvement as a member of our leadership team.”

Amidst increasing fund consolidation and shifting investor/adviser relationships, Paul joins Frontier at a time when the firm has grown to its largest size, in terms of staff, clients, and funds under advice, and has been ranked the number one consulting firm in Australia for four successive years.
