VanEck Brisbane office appointments

VanEck has made two senior appointments to its client support and investment and capital markets teams, with the ETF-specialist investment firm also announcing its launch next month of a new Brisbane office.

Joining VanEck’s sales team is Deniz Kilic, who assumes the title of business development associate.

In his new role, Kilic will be tasked with supporting the firm’s growing client base in New South Wales and Queensland.

He joins from Prime Partners’ financial planning arm, where he served as a senior paraplanner and associate adviser.

Vivian Liu has been appointed as an associate in VanEck’s investments & capital markets team, tasked with supporting the firm’s investment operations, including asset valuations and trade settlements.

Liu most recently served as client service administrator at TCorp, which provides financial management and advice for the NSW public sector, and was formerly assistant client service manager of ETF and mutual funds at State Street, working a total of seven years at the firm.

In addition to the new hires, VanEck has announced it will establish a new Brisbane office next month, providing a dedicated, on-the-ground presence to support its “significant growth in adviser usage of our ETFs across the state”.

Angus Fowler, currently a senior business development associate, will be promoted to lead VanEck’s new Queensland officer, serving as business development manager.

Chief executive and managing director of VanEck Asia Pacific Arian Neiron said: “As one of Australia’s fastest growing fund managers for more than five years, these new appointments reflect VanEck’s evolution in the region and our continued expansion in the future.”

“VanEck has become the go-to ETF provider among the adviser community. We are the leader in smart beta ETFs and the leading innovator in the country. More than half of the ETFs we’ve launched have been a first in Australia,” Neiron said.
