AFTER 35 years in the industry and 24 years with Pendal, Andrew Waddington will retire at the end of March 2022.

Andrew leaves with the gratitude and best wishes of Pendal and recognition of the contributions he has made to the success of Pendal’s Australian equity franchise.

Andrew will hand management of the Pendal Midcap Fund to Brenton Saunders from April 1, 2022.

Brenton has been with Pendal for nine years as a research analyst in the resource sector and portfolio manager of the BT Natural Resources Fund.

He has a total of 28 years of experience including 25 as an analyst and 16 as a portfolio manager.

Brenton will commence as Co-PM of the Fund with Andrew Waddington from January 7.

There will be a period of transition as Brenton takes greater ownership, before he becomes the sole portfolio manager after Andrew’s retirement at the end of March.

Brenton’s depth of experience, long tenure with the team, extremely strong performance record as portfolio manager and his close collaboration with other Pendal portfolio managers leaves him placed well to continue the Pendal Midcap Fund’s success.

The Pendal Imputation Fund and Tax Effective Funds, which Andrew co-managed, will be solely managed by Jim Taylor from January 7, 2022. He will be supported by Oliver Renton.
