BetaShares appoints General Counsel & Head of Compliance 


BetaShares Capital Limited (BetaShares) has appointed Anton Allen as General Counsel & Head of Compliance. The appointment comes as BetaShares continues its strong growth trajectory, recently listing its fourth exchange traded fund (ETF) in just under six months.

Allen, who was previously Head of Legal at Macquarie Funds Group, part of Macquarie Bank, brings substantial legal, compliance and risk management expertise to BetaShares. He has 18 years of experience in the legal profession, specialising in institutional and retail funds management.

Allen’s extensive experience includes providing legal advice for products in the equities, fixed income, currency, commodities and alternatives space.

Alex Vynokur & David Nathanson, Joint Managing Directors of BetaShares, believe Allen’s appointment will further bolster BetaShares’ business as it continues to expand the range of ETFs available for local investors. "Anton’s wealth of experience will be a great asset to BetaShares," they say.
