BFM Group appoints two new directors to board

Ian Womack and Adam Tindall have been appointed as non-executive directors to the board of the Bennelong Funds Management Group, BennBridge’s Australian-based parent company.


Ian, based in London, is a global investment specialist whose financial services career spans more than 40 years. His experience includes managing multi-billion-pound real estate portfolios and advising a number of boards. His appointment will include on-the-ground advisory support for BennBridge.

Ian spent most of his corporate career at Aviva Investors (previously known as Morley Fund Management and Norwich Union), with the last 15 years overseeing property portfolios of around £25 billion and running a global team across the UK, Singapore, USA, France, Germany, the Netherlands and Poland. He currently sits on a number of boards, and provides pro bono advice to The Story of Christmas Appeal and the Willow Foundation.

Adam is based in Sydney and is the former chief executive officer of AMP Capital, where he oversaw AU$200 billion of funds across a range of asset classes including fixed interest, real estate, infrastructure and equities. Prior to this, he was director, chief investment officer and chief operating officer at AMP Capital Real Estate. In his 35-year executive career, he was also an executive director in property and infrastructure at Macquarie Capital and held business leadership roles at Lendlease. He currently sits on the board at Stockland as a non-executive director.

Craig Bingham, global chief executive officer of the BFM Group, said the appointments further strengthen the board with notable international and industry expertise.

“Ian and Adam join the business at a significant time in our development as we continue our expansion across the UK, the US and Australia. We’re also continuing to explore ways in which we can support smart, sustainable and inclusive growth.

“Ian’s extensive experience will bolster our operations in the UK and assist BennBridge in further navigating the market.

“Meanwhile, Adam has not only helped grow funds and assets for clients and led the way on substantial transactions and private capital raisings, but has also been involved in pivotal, high level investment decisions that have helped to shape the Australian funds management market,” Craig said.
