Matt Harris has joined Invast Global in Sydney as director of prime services.
He joins from Credit Suisse in Sydney where he worked in the PS4PB business, a prime services arm of Credit Suisse for private banks that allows funds and family offices that are sophisticated enough to utilise the investment bank capabilities.
Harris worked at Credit Suisse in Hong Kong from 2007, before moving to Sydney for a brief one year stint at ANZ in business management and planning – OTC in 2015/16, and then moving back to Credit Suisse in his last role in June 2016. Prior to Credit Suisse he worked at HSBC in Sydney for almost six years as a client relationship manager.
“Matt’s clear focus on client relations and strong, proven expertise in managing sophisticated investors is an asset to Invast Global,” says CEO Gavin White. “We are extremely excited to secure talent of Matt’s calibre. His expertise will add another layer to our expertise and enhance our reputation in the market as being extremely client focussed as we tailor products to meet our client’s needs.”
Harris adds, “[I am] keen to get stuck into a place that is smaller, up and coming, and a disruptor in the hedge fund and family office landscape. Invast Global has the unique opportunity to become the alternative prime that is willing to take on and nurture emerging funds and offices that the larger primes have lost an appetite for.”
