Investment management firm, Oaktree Capital Management, has brought on its first managing director of marketing tasked with leading marketing and business development across the A/NZ.

Brett Penprase will be based in Sydney and reports into the managing director and global head of marketing, Tony Harrington. He joins the investment group from Challenger, where he was a senior institutional business development manager for just over 18 months.

Penprase has 27 years’ experience in the investment and financial services industry across asset types, distribution channels and client types and in a raft of different roles. Notably, he spent over 10 years with Zurich, working up from settlements and unit pricing to become head of manager research for retail distribution.

Since then, his roles have included assistant VP of Partners Group and director of institutional sales with Robecco. He commenced his career at Global Funds Management in equities.

Harrington said he was delighted to have someone of Penprase’s calibre join the leadership team.

“As the first dedicated marketing hire in Australia, we look forward to benefitting from Brett’s experience and network of institutional and intermediary clients within the Australia and New Zealand markets, offering investors a range of investment solutions focused on alternative investments and inefficient markets,” he commented.

Oaktree is a global investment management firm with US$148 billion of alternative investments under management at the end of 2020.  The company established an office in Sydney in 2016 and operates across 19 cities globally.
