Sydney-based prime-of-prime provider Invast Global has recruited Tiffany Besnard to lead its hedge fund sales team for the Asia Pacific region (APAC).
Tiffany joins the firm following 22 years of experience in the investment industry across private equity, OTC trading, prime services, with an emphasis on hedge funds. She is due to take up the reins with immediate effect and will work along with the Invast Global team, led by Andrew Bradshaw.

Commenting on her appointment, Tiffany Besnard said: “I’m thrilled to be joining Invast Global at such an exciting time. I’m very much looking forward to working with the team to advance growth and strategic direction. I’m also looking forward to meeting new and existing clients in APAC very soon.”
