Leading global asset manager Aberdeen Standard Investments (ASI) has promoted two members of its successful Australian equities portfolio management team.

ASI has appointed Natalie Tam to Deputy Head of Australian Equities, and Camille Simeon to Investment Director, recognising their deep experience in markets and positive contribution to the performance of the Australian equities portfolio management team.

Aberdeen Standard Investments Head of Australian Equities, Michelle Lopez, said the promotions were an endorsement of Natalie and Camille’s work.

“I am delighted to award these promotions to Natalie and Camille, who have been committed members of the Australian equities team over the last 15 and 12 years, respectively.

“While the last nine months have been challenging, both Natalie and Camille have stepped up and led on projects in addition to their day-to-day analysis and portfolio management responsibilities, which have been extraordinarily demanding during these times.

“Furthermore, the work Natalie and Camille have contributed to, to continue to grow our ESG engagement with businesses and their successes in the area this year is a testament to their promotions,” Lopez said.

Natalie joined Aberdeen Standard Investments in 2005 from Deutsche Bank where she worked as a research analyst covering the Media sector. Natalie previously worked at Rothschild (Investment Banking), Coca Cola Amatil (Corporate Strategy) and Royal & Sun Alliance (Group Finance), and is a CFA charterholder.

Camille joined ASI as an Equities Investment Manager in 2008 from Citigroup, where she was Vice President Institutional Research Sales in Australia and New York. She holds a Bachelor of Business in Finance from the University of Technology Sydney, and has completed a Post Graduate Diploma in Investment and Financial Analysis from the Securities Institute of Australia.
