Dr Rumble has a diverse background in financial services over 25 years ranging from legal counsel, partner at PriceWaterhouseCoopers and lecturer at the University of New South Wales before founding two successful businesses.

Dr Rumble worked as a full-time academic at ATAX UNSW in the 1990’s and retains a close involvement in academia and regulatory policy.

He has an extensive history with financial products and will improve BetaShares value proposition with his educative approach to portfolio construction.

“With his deep understanding of the product and adviser market, we believe Tony is a perfect fit for the newly formed role. His technical background combined with a strong planner network will be crucial to the growth of BetaShares and raising the profile of the Australian ETF industry.”

Dr Rumble commenced with BetaShares on 30 January and will work closely with another recent hire Vinnie Wadhera, who was appointed as Director, Portfolio and National Account Sales earlier this year.
