It has appointed Sam Belton.

He joins Nikko AM NZ with more than seven years’ experience in investment management most recently as client relationship manager for New Zealand Assets Management (NZAM), a boutique investment management firm.

Prior to that he was the client relationship executive team manager at Legal and General Investment Management, the largest asset management company in the UK.

Belton has also held positions at GlaxoSmithKline and Westpac New Zealand.

James Wesley, Nikko's head of distribution, said he was thrilled to have Belton join Nikko AM NZ. He said his significant background in investment management and involvement with global clients would be a welcome addition to the team.

Belton will primarily be responsible for managing and growing the firm’s institutional relationships.

“As we continue to expand, Belton’s broad exposure to global clients will be beneficial in helping develop and provide NZ clients with more progressive investment solutions,” Wesley said.

Belton said he looked forward to helping the firm build on its reputation as a trusted asset manager and capitalise on Nikko AM NZ’s global expertise.

“Nikko AM NZ is one of the leading investment managers in the New Zealand market, with the differentiating factor of being part of a well-established, global business. It is an exciting time to join Nikko AM NZ with the recent launch of KiwiSaver, as well as leading the way in New Zealand in the provision of digital investment advice with ‘GoalsGetter'."

Nikko AM NZ actively manages approximately $6 billion of investments, including corporate superannuation schemes, community and charitable trusts, foundations, financial planners, banks, insurance companies, KiwiSaver Schemes, other fund managers and retail investors. It manages domestic assets through its Auckland-based investment team and employs carefully selected offshore managers to manage global assets.
